Episode Info

Episode Info:

Ryan and Andy do some good-ol'-days-ing about their early years in Japan... BUT it's actually relevant. We promise!

Here's why:

  • Moving to Japan to practice martial arts has had a huge impact on how we think about training, quality, and mastery.
  • Our experience as teachers is one of the most fundamental components of the GMB Method. Every seen one of our videos and thought "that's a good explanation?" Well, this is why.ย 
  • Part of GMB is de-culturalizing movements that are most commonly seen in certain contexts and making them available to anyone.ย 

We've got some good stories in this one - a couple of them are pretty embarrassing - and we also wax philosophical onย what it all means.ย 

Without Andy and Ryan both happening to live in Osaka circa 2008, there's be no GMB, but at a much deeper level, without the experiences we talk about in this episode, we simply wouldn't have been capable of coming up with any of this.ย
