Beards and Mixed Martial Arts

Today the guys are talking about the world of mixed martial arts. Eric talks about his training in boxing, Clayton discusses his first playground fight in middle school, and guest Zach Caruso talks about his martial arts training and his years on the United States Wushu Team.

The guys also dissect how MMA has evolved over the years, what different martial arts styles look like and incorporate, and the benefits of martial arts training even outside of the ring.

Zach talks about his training and time competing on the US team, the guys talk about weapons training and young kids getting involved in martial arts training, old school martial arts movies, and rocking a beard while competing and training.

Listen now to hear more about Zach’s time competing, Clayton discuss the arcs and drama of professional wrestling, and a little-known wrestling technique guaranteed to get you a win.
