In this conversation BJJ black belt Jon Thomas and I go deep into training and drilling methodologies that give you results as fast as possible.
Jon is originally from the US but teaches at a school in Sweden. He still competes at a high level, so he has had to take extreme ownership over his results using reverse-engineering and a very analytical approach to his training.
In this episode we go deep into how everyone learns BJJ differently and how therefore the optimal learning environment is also different for everyone.
We also cover training methodologies you can use to get better at a smaller gym without a world class talent pool of sparring partners (hint: basically it involves turning your gym into a scientific laboratory for developing techniques).
You'll also learn how to increase your mat time without incurring more injuries, methods to develop attack systems from different positions, tournament strategies vs training strategies, and our thoughts on how many top level competitors are on steroids
