“Your Conscious Mind is So much stronger than the Subconscious, if you allow your Conscious Mind to take control of what is happening.”—Ray Sefo
My guest this episode is the one and only Ray Sefo, he has fought in 110 Professional Fights, achieving 54 Knock Outs and 6 World Titles. He has competed in 4 Combat Sports (Boxing, Muay Thai, Kick Boxing, and MMA). Mr. Sefo is the President of Fighter Operations for PFL, the Professional Fighters League and is a true martial arts renaissance man.
This episode is filled with golden nuggets. We cover the lost art of vision, timing and setting up your opponents. We talk about Ray’s transition from traditional arts like Wing Chun to Sport Combat arts like Boxing and Muay Thai. My key takeaway is that “Mental Toughness is the courage to step forward and face your fears.” We dive deep into understanding the inner workings of the Conscious mind and how it must be trained to take control of what is happening around you. Ray describes that “The biggest battle is always fighting yourself.” We also discuss his amazing fighting career, his is epic battles with Mirko Cro Cop, Ernesto Hoost, Jerome Le Banner, and the birth of the PFL. This is an insightful episode filled with great wisdom from a true humble warrior of the arts.
