No one can say it better than Clint, right?
Grapplers, many of you are competing in Pan American this weekend, and for that you should be commended. It's an awesome challenge for any grappler to step up and lay it on the line like that.
A teammate of mine told me just this morning that, win or lose, he always felt that absorbing the energy of the competition and facing the challenge always helped to elevate his game going forward. That's pretty damn cool.
So, train hard and rest up too, grapplers (I'll be doing the same). Good luck out there.
