Charlie Vinch on Injuries in BJJ and the Power of the Mind

Charlie Vinch is a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Phil Migliarese. Charlie previously came on the show to talk about owning a BJJ academy, living the martial arts lifestyle, and training under the Relson Gracie lineage. This week, Charlie delves into some deeper topics including the power of the mind, recovering from serious injury, and some of his own personal life philosophy. This is a powerful episode, especially if you're dealing with a life altering injury that is preventing your progress in the martial arts.
