Art Davie came up with the idea for a little something called the UFC. As an American Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt I can tell everyone without a doubt my life would be completely different without Art's creation and hard work. It was an honor and a pleasure to sit down with a true legend and founder of mixed martial arts. His book "Is This Legal" is available on Amazon and anywhere else books are sold so get it. After you listen to this episode you'll be begging for an audiobook version ( just like I was ! ). Enjoy the show and check out Is This Legal? The Book !

This weekend was BUSY ! Friday I was backstage at the Bellator 165 weigh-ins and interviewed Royce Gracie. Saturday I attended a Royce Seminar at Serao Jiu Jitsu Academy in Mountain View, CA. Saturday night was the Bellator 165 fight event at the SAP Center and Sunday was a seminar with Grand Master Francisco Mansor. He is a true pioneer and legend in Jiu Jitsu. This entire weekend has been amazing. I have learned so much. Sunday night I spent about 3 hours recording content and another few hours editing. I hope that everyone has a safe and happy thanksgiving break and to everyone else around the world -- I hope that you and your families are all healthy, happy and safe. Thanks for checking out my show. Please consider sharing and subscribing as it helps me out tremendously!  Much love as always - Clint

Tait Fletcher 

Tait Fletcher comes to Sunnyvale and sits down to talk about Jiu Jitsu, MMA, UFC and more ! 

@TaitFletcher TenthPlanet/Jackson'sMMA O.G., Stuntman. Actor. BlackBeltSwag. DEATHSQUAD

Fighter

Tait Fletcher has had quite an enigmatic history. The complexities and accomplishments of his road are not lost on him. He was born and raised in Michigan and it was here that his work ethic and diligence afforded him a scholarship at St. Johns College, a classical literature studies program, in Santa Fe, NM. While looking for a distraction from a grueling study schedule, Tait found what was to become the finest MMA gym in the world, Jackson-Winklejohn MMA. He started as a distraction from school, but soon everything else became a distraction. Over the next decade Tait rose to one of the best grapplers in the world. He was championed and medaled in hundreds of tournaments, including the Mundials, Pan-Am Games, Grapplers Quest and many more, he earned his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He fought in several hundred stick fights with the Dog Brothers and Stray Dog fighting fraternities.  His love of the sport and competitive nature evolved to his career as a respected MMA fighter. Tait was a forerunner in the sport of MMA through its crucial growing period. What he learned as a professional fighter ingrained in him the most important tools and values he has.

Stunt Man

Nearing the end of his interest in MMA, Tait decided to pursue another life-long dream of being a Stunt Man. As he strode successfully down that road, many directors and stunt coordinators had different ideas for Tait and saw within him a natural ability on screen. It became time for Tait to sharpen up his skills as an actor, a dream that seemed impossibly unattainable, but as he’d always shown in his history, the unreasonable dream was always a welcome challenge

Actor

Like the world of fighting the natural progression of Tait’s commitment to his onscreen craft has led him from working as a stuntman in such hits as Paul, Thor and Red Dawn, to being featured with acting roles in Schwarzenegger’s Last Stand and as the villain hunting Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in this years hit, 2Guns. What I’m getting at is this kid is one to watch in the action world!!

Speaker

Tait also helps many others achieve their dreams too. It is something he has carried with him throughout his life. He’s well studied in nutrition and functional movement, as one would imagine and he has taken many of his old teammates at Jackson’s Gym to new levels of excellence. Tait owns and manages his own gym specializing in empowerment in Santa Fe, New Mexico, called Undisputed Fitness. Undisputed Fitness contains 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu and CrossFit Santa Fe. He is also busy creating a podcast called the Tait Fletcher Show, at the urging of his good friend Joe Rogan. The Tait Fletcher show is his vehicle for urging, empowering, educating and engaging with his growing fan base and helping others towards further function and confidence in their life. So stay tuned and #staybulletproof.

Eric has an amazing story which I am extremely honored and humbled to be able to help to tell to the world. If you have the opportunity to spend any time with him at his academy -- do it. Like his mentor Jean Jacques, Eric is a very thoughtful and knowledgable instructor that I am very glad to call a friend. His journey is interesting and his story is extremely heart felt. Thanks very much to Eric and his family for making time in his busy schedule to come and record this episode. It is very much appreciated .
