On today’s episode, we have a black belt under Brandon Bennet of the Renzo Gracie Academy, Robert Degle.

Today Robert discusses why he made the decision to forgo a master's degree in philosophy to become a full-time grappler, instructor, and competitor. Robert also shares how he deals with the nerves of competing, the differences between training in the US vs Europe, whether or not Jiu Jitsu will ever become a huge spectator sport and why, and a ton more.

Here is The RŌL Radio with one of the most sought-after instructors in the world who has taught in over 18 countries and on three continents, Robert Degle.
