Richard “Shaky” Shore — MMA as a Path to Self-Improvement
Today’s episode is a very special one for me.
I sit down and speak to Richard “Shaky” Shore, Brazilian JiuJitsu black belt, head coach and owner of Shore Mixed Martial Arts (SMMA), and host of the Shake, Rattle, and Roll podcast, where Richard interviews British sporting icons and rising stars, primarily in the MMA scene.
What Richard has achieved with his gym SMMA is nothing short of spectacular.
Coming from a place in the Welsh valleys where there hasn’t historically been a ton of opportunity, he created a mixed martial arts gym before the sport became the mainstream attraction it is now, and has gone on to build a truly state of the art training facility boasting 3 UFC athletes, and many top level pro and amateur MMA fighters.
I train at SMMA, and Richard is my Brazilian Jiujitsu coach, so this interview was particularly important for me.
WHAT WE DISCUSS:
- Richard’s journey as a martial artist
- The benefits of practicing martial arts
- The steps that he took to become a UFC coach
- The most important martial arts to start with
- How to encourage children to take up martial arts
- The value of competition
- MUCH MORE…
