“Success Leaves Clues, so Surround Yourself with Greatness.” – Mike Swain
My guest this episode is Mike Swain who is one of the most successful American Judoka’s in history. He is the first American Male Judoka to win a Gold Medal in the 1987 World Championships and followed that up with a Bronze Medal in the 1988 Olympics. He is the VP of Martial Arts for Dollamur Sports Surfaces and one of the most respected Martial Arts Masters on the Planet.
This Episode is all about what it takes to be a champion on and off the matts. My key take away is that repetitions, balance, and discipline create an unshakeable trust in your ability to perform under pressure. Mike’s philosophy is that “Success Leaves Clues”, so surround yourself with greatness. We discuss training strategies, match preparation, and how to deal with adversity.
Mike’s stories are inspirational and his humility and calm, cool, collected demeanor is truly masterful.
