In this episode I speak with Coach Ricky Pachon . A young coach from Gracie Barra, Bondi Beach, Australia.
Ricky leads a successful youth competition team and is himself an avid competitor on the Australian BJJ/Grappling scene.
Recently a parent of a student of Ricky reached out to me to introduce him. Following several years of employing a high-repetition traditional approach to developing his youth team. Ricky has in recent months been another coach to fall down the ecological rabbit hole.
Ricky's enthusiasm and energy spills out when he talks about coaching and training and it's clear, despite his age he is well on his way to becoming a high level bjj coach and ambassador for the sport.
Ricky talks about his recent transition to a ecological approach and we discuss the reception of his student and fellow coaches.
You can get in touch with Ricky and follow him on his IG page.
I look forward to watching this passionate coach and his team grow and thrive in the coming years.
