Accurate Thinking for Coaches and Grapplers is a book that will allow you to align your personal behaviors on and off the mat with your thoughts about success. As competitors and coaches we understand that the currencies for success on the mat which are accepted in order to achieve a spot on the medal stand are sweat, blood, tears, sacrifice, and repetition. And with this in mind we also know that the one thing that is a huge hurdle to many people making this payment for success is their belief in what they are doing and their accurate assessment in what they are doing. Iron sharpens iron and athletes are sharpened by other athletes, competition, and coaches. And coaches are sharpened by other coaches, athletes, parents, and mentors. And parents are sharpened by the child-rearing process. And all individuals must have someone or something that makes them sharp and keeps them sharp. However, most people do not want to be openly, clearly, and freely critiqued with the honesty that it takes to be the best nor are most willing to look at their current situation accurately and honestly in terms of why success is not within their grasp or reach.
In Accurate Thinking for Coaches and Grapplers, what you have is an opportunity to sharpen yourself. You have an opportunity to look inside of the mind of a 2004 Olympian, a four-time National Judo Champion, a NCAA Division 1 Wrestler, a veteran of the Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling World Championships, a World Championship Coach for Team USA at the 2009 Grappling World Champions, a silver medalist at the Mundials (Brazilian Jiujitsu World Championships), a black belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu, and former strength and conditioning coach for BJJ Phenoms Keenan Cornelius and JT Torres.
