During the holidaze it’s not unusual to experience a bit of the blahs. Here are a few documentaries I like to watch for inspiration. Most are fight sport related. Check them out if you need a little boost.
Choke – (A Rickson Gracie Documentary) is mandatory viewing. I watch this at least twice a year if not more.
ROLL: Jiu-Jitsu in So Cal which features my coach Chris Haueter is easily my favorite. I watch this or parts of this film twice a month… at least twice a month.
Jiu-Jitsu VS The World which also features Chris Haueter. You can learn more about Chris here.
Anything featuring Karelin will get you motivated. The Experiment was on another level.
The Highland Games and strongman competition is near and dear to my heart. I simply love every aspect of the games. Stoneland inspires me due to my Scottish heritage and some of my earliest memories are seeing the men in my family participate in feats of strength.
The Rogue Series contain some real gems, and I get a lot of inspiration and motivation from watching these.
Anything featuring Ramon The Diamond Dekkers makes me want to throw hands.
Steve Prefontaine set a standard that others can only strive to attain. Pre’s mental approach to the sport inspires my mental approach to everything I do.
I hope you found some inspiration if you needed it, if not just keep it in mind for the time when you do. Happy holidays, enjoy the time with your family and friends.
