With OpenMatRadio I get a lot of requests to have "regular joe/jane" people on and not just people on the professional level competition circuit. On this week's show I had my best friend and longest training partner Matt Godden on.
We talk a lot about his training over the years, and how it's been a struggle as he never had a blackbelt coach on the mat with him everyday. We discuss how he has dealt with progressing through the belts, dealing with affiliations, "creonte" vs loyalty and more.
I'm wondering how many other people are in this situation and what your approach to it is.
Not trying to turn this into an ad for the show, I'm really interested in what everyone's training situations are like. You don't need to listen to the interview but if you'd like to check it out here is the link http://www.openmatradio.com/2013/10/...8-matt-godden/
