Quotes from The Fighter's Mind by Sam Sheridan
"It was understood that there was a winner and a dead man. Which makes my approach to training totally different if I'm going to die. It's impossible for you to train the same way, I don't care how much you practice, I don't care how sharp your sword is or what famous smith made it. If you go into a sword fight for points, you'll never obtain what I'm obtaining with a dull sword against somebody that's going to die." - Virgil Hunter
Life and death intensity matters and is valuable.
Nothing can replace natural self- discipline, nothing can replace time in a gym.
Fighters are born in the dedication to repetition.
The research shows that repeated social defeats not only affect the hippocampus's ability to make new cells, it affects serotonin levels.
- Sam Sheridan

" He may be strong, but all I have to do during that nine minutes of wrestling is loosen one single wire in his brain, make him do something that isn't perfect, and he will fall apart. " - Dan Gable

Jiu- jitsu is about dedication and knowledge.

— Charles T. Munger”
