On this episode, we have a world-class coach and one of the owners of SBG Athens, Adam Singer.

Toady Adam discusses the anxiety he has instructing classes, his unique coaching philosophy, the importance of failure and what he calls failing smarter, his beliefs on what makes a champion, nature vs nurture, and more.

This is a really deep conversation with a coach who has developed multiple world champions, most notably former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Forrest Griffin. Here is The RŌL Radio with third-degree BJJ black belt, Adam Singer.
