What inspires you to compete?
Progression – for me competition is the truest form of progression. If you can get it to work against fully resisting opponents then it works. I compete to progress.
What advice would you give other competitors?
Try not to worry too much about the end goal of winning, focus on performing well. Try to always think process, not outcome. It’s hard to win if you don’t take the time to focus on performing well first.
