#21 Kit Dale - The Unknown Strength Podcast

Episode #21 of The Unknown Strength Podcast features the Australian actor, BJJ world champion and man behind the hilarious skits all over the internet, Kit Dale. What an honor and pleasure it was to sit down with Kit, in Melbourne, who spoke candidly of his journey and explosive rise as an athlete and innovator on the world stage, to transitioning into film as an actor, as well as how he has also negotiated a lifetime of anxiety and learning to negotiate with it. Kit also elaborates on his controversial philosophy on developing in jiujitsu and the utility of drilling versus the conceptual problem solving approach he endorses, citing “repetition is the killer of creativity”. Some great conversations with a very interesting man – tune into his upcoming match against Tommy Langaker at the ADCC Nordic Open, September 8th.
