Joey Fritz on Training Your Brain Pre/Post-Impact, and Compassion Versus Violence (#13)

Joey Fritz works with a host of professional strikers and mixed martial artists at Elevation Fight Team, Denver Colorado and received his MA in Sport and Performance Psychology from the University of Denver, Denver in June 2016.

In his second MoveMind podcast appearance, we talk about; Cory Sandhagen’s latest winning streak and what he and Joey worked together on to elicit the inner Sandman, compassion within violence and how they’re more closely linked than you might expect, and how contact/combat sports athletes can train their brains pre and post-impact to help reduce long term negative effects.

Be sure to check him on episode 9, too.
