“It’s a matter of winning the smallest battles in your head before you win the big battles on a big stage.”—Miesha Tate
My guest this episode is Miesha Tate who is a pioneer and trailblazer of Women’s Mixed Martial Arts. She is the former Strike Force and UFC Bantamweight Champion and was Vice President of One Championship. She is currently fighting for the UFC.
Miesha Tate has built a career on mental fortitude and going beyond her limitations. My Key Take Away is that Martial Arts teaches us to stay calm and composed in high pressure situations and gives us the ability to not freakout and be over emotional. We talk about fight preparation, strategy, and the importance of mental and physical conditioning. We also discuss the growth of Mixed Martial Arts and how important it is for Athletes to be able to train the individual parts, boxing, Thai boxing, wrestling, and Jiujitsu, and then be able to integrate them into one fluid whole.
