This was one of my absolute favorite interviews. Personally I think this is one of our best shows ever. I really hope you guys take the time and give it a listen. Nic is a really amazing guy with such a unique mindset and philosophy. You may not agree with everything we talk about in the interview but I guarantee you will have an opinion you'll want to share. Be sure to checkout Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood, London Real (he records as Nic Gabriel) and Q5 Combat Labs to learn more about Nic and his work. As always thanks for listening and for giving us and all our guests a chance! Phone Post

I will listen soon too!

Check out Nic's youtube video on the cross choke from mount- still one of the best instructional on the web regarding that move.

Nic's radio show London Real is very cool, they have some great guests. Him and Brian have a great thing going on there.

great interview- I'm really enjoying the questions you have been asking the guest.

I know Nic did too, as he said "That's a great question" after almost every question haha.

Glad you liked it. I have to admit that I sometimes worry that I'm going to come off as a fanboy, or even worse, an idiot for certain interviews. Nic throwing back that support meant a lot. I appreciate London Real so much that I wanted the interview to flow and have good structure. I'm not saying I'm as good as LR but I strive to be. I respect Nic so much that I wanted to make sure people that don't know him will get a better idea of him. Each of us at OPEN MAT RADIO have our guests that we are super fans of. This was my case with Nic. Hope I didn't come off as a loser.

Thanks everyone for the support. I love Nic's perspective on a lot of things and hope people they don't know him give him a listen. Thanks again!

I think you come across as an intelligent person asking thoughtful questions.

I'm a huge fan of listening to podcasts, and probably listen to 99% of the bjj ones out there (even the obscure ones).

To me, your intelligent questions during interviews (and the length of your interviews) separate you from the others.

(don't worry tf- I still love you guys and think you guys are smart too.)

Big fan of Nic's ever since I heard him on the Samsara podcast. Was hoping you guys would have him on some day. The interview did not disappoint. I really like his perspective on the art and you guys did a great job of conversing with him as opposed to it being a bunch of short questions and answers.

Great interview guys. Nic is a very mindful self aware individual. It's always nice to hear people with different perspectives on BJJ and life.
