Episode 51 – Stare Down Language


Rob and Dave get back together after some long travels and David recounts his experience at his recent retreat in Costa Rica at Hero Academy, exploring the bonds forged through martial arts training.

They then get into the importance of the stare down – a classic pre-fight ritual that some people handle poorly. The two discuss the psychological impact it can have, and why it’s important to play it right. This builds into a conversation about language, free speech, BJJ vocabulary, and curriculums.
