Professor David Meyer is a martial arts practitioner and instructor who teaches how can we maximize nutrition. He is a 2019 IBJJF Champion.
He (Sensei Jack Seki) used to tell us that you're always armed. You're armed with the ground. He said it's better than a club, it's better than a knife because you can hit someone with the Earth. What he meant by that is you could throw them, if you want, head first to the ground and coming from 5 feet high in the air however they are when you throw them, they're not going to get up.
Most of us martial artists may say that the reason for training is because of bullying. Professor David Meyer's story is not far from it because he went to a local community college to train at age 6 with his brother who was being bullied. Interestingly enough, during their time, they chose to train with jiujitsu. Today, Professor David Meyer, aside from being a defending IBJJF Champion at his weight class, is an advocate of proper nutrition and living vegan/vegetarian. Professor Meyer surely shared a lot about his training and advocacy. Listen to learn more!
