Epi 323 Coach and Competitor Amal Easton

This week we have an interview with BJJ Black Belt Amal Easton. Amal is the rare person that has both been able to compete at a high level and produce high level competitors of BJJ and MMA.

We talk about:

  • His start to BJJ
  • Coaching jiu-jitsu
  • How skying gave him grit that he used on the mats
  • Moving to Brazil early in his BJJ journey
  • How teaching BJJ has changed over the years
  • The academy is a farm or a jungle concept
  • Creating an environment that is good for everyone
  • Why some people quit BJJ
