Join Nick Lamagna on The A Game Podcast with guest, Ryan Ford, Brazilian Jiu jItsu Brown belt, entrepreneur and Host of one of the biggest sports podcasts, "The Grappling Central Podcast"

We discuss many things including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, as Ryan goes into an incredible story of losing it all and rolling the dice to chase his dreams when he was at a crossroads as many entrepreneurs find themselves.  He goes into the mindset and connections he has acquired from years of Jiu Jitsu knowledge on and off the mats that helped him find a way to persevere when things got tough.  He goes into some misconceptions about how much work an entrepreneur puts in to something to make it look good and we discuss his amazing documentary "The Saint of Crackland," diving into the struggles of one of the toughest areas in Brazil and how Jiu JItsu is literally saving lives and giving the youth in the area a second chance at a quality life.

By the end of this episode you will learn why it is important to go after your dreams and how there is no stability or guarantees in life personally or professionally.  You will learn why it is responsible to be aware of what is going on in your industry so you can pivot when needed.  We also discuss some of the legends in BJJ. Ryan and I have trained with including Matt Serra, Renzo Gracie, Demian maia, Silvio Moraes, Mark Turner, Kurt Osiander and Paul Creighton!  Links in the show notes for all their schools!
