“My view of Jiu-Jitsu is different to most. To me, it is a tool that I use to learn more about myself. My main training approach is to combine conceptual understanding with technical knowledge. Jiu-Jitsu is more than just learning a bunch of set moves. It’s about discovering the most efficient approach to many aspects of life, including nutrition, movement and human interaction.”
