This week we're joined again by Rob Biernacki! Rob is fresh off an amazing performance at ADCC Open Canada 2023, where he won gold in the Masters division and Island Top Team took the #1 overall adult team rating. What makes this so impressive is that in addition to being a small team, they're also mostly hobbyists.
In this episode, Rob breaks down his competition mindset: a rejection of the "alpha" tropes we see all over social media. Rob's approach is about trusting in your training, being comfortable with the work done, yielding to the possibility of loss, and identifying as perseverant.
