40
00:02:12,660 –> 00:02:16,750

boxing and jiu jitsu where it’s

51
00:02:45,000 –> 00:02:48,790

you’re going to find out who’s the

53
00:02:50,380 –> 00:02:52,810
better man that day if I wasn’t better

54
00:02:52,810 –> 00:02:56,140
today than I was yesterday then I lost

55
00:02:56,140 –> 00:02:58,690
that day so that kind of has evolved

56
00:02:58,690 –> 00:03:02,709
onto the mat we’re especially with like

57
00:03:02,709 –> 00:03:06,430
the ashtanga practice the rocket

00:03:06,430 –> 00:03:09,790
practice where I can see that change

59
00:03:09,790 –> 00:03:13,220
happen every single day and where I can

60
00:03:13,220 –> 00:03:18,030
push myself on the mat and whether it’s

61
00:03:18,030 –> 00:03:21,390
physically or mentally every day it’s

62
00:03:21,390 –> 00:00:00,000
