Shihan Grant Campbell – Episode 124
Because when everybody in the room is a black belt, everybody in the room is highly skilled and very good, then it’s the mental game, and it’s the mental side that takes place. That’s what separates the top from the other people in the room.
I first met Shihan Grant Campbell during the March 2016 Superfoot black belt gathering in Florida. It was during this same assembly that I met Kyoshi Kevin Hudson, and, of course, Sensei Terry Dow and Bill Wallace were there. I met a lot of people that weekend, and everyone was very skilled, and a great person to work with. There was one person, though, that stood out for me in the way he helped me through that weekend.
We’ve all worked with martial arts practitioners that seem to understand us, to know our journey, and to make us better. Shihan Campbell was that person for me, at least on that weekend. I enjoyed his help with the physical aspects of our training, but also really appreciated his humor and stories during meals and downtime. I knew that he was someone we needed to have on the show.
The scheduling took some time, as he’s very busy with training, teaching, and travelling, but we made it happen. Listen in, you’ll see that it was worth the wait. ~jeremy
