In today's episode (ep. 138), we take a break from our normal format and present to you an interview. Marco interviews Rick Migliarese. Rick is the co-owner of Balance Studios. Philadelphia's oldest and most successful Brazilian jiu-jitsu schools.

Talking to Rick you realize how important his father was and continues to be to him. Even eight years after his father's death Rick still uses life lessons taught by his father. We talk about how every moment good or bad has made Rick who he is today, and he would not change any of it. 

We discuss chess, how the game’s decision process has helped Rick learn from failure, and how he applies that to training. Rick also advises you to not be the smartest or the toughest person in the room, this way you can always be learning.
