Dave Allanson on Optimising Learning for BJJ and Thinking Critically with Navigating The Grey Area (#29)

If you’re interested in learning to think critically, then listen in! Dave Allanson of Foundations Performance is my guest on episode #29, where we take a deeper dive into his excellent course, Navigating The Grey Area, which I recently completed and highly recommend EVERYONE signs up.

Our conversation covers more as to why Dave created the course to give a thinking critically skillset to S&C coaches, PTs and Physiotherapists, amongst others. We also talk about how you can optimise your learning for BJJ, and other S&C approaches that work well for grapplers.
