This is a new series that I’m working on called The 4th Point of Contact.
As most of you know, my recent book is called The Three Points of Contact which refers to a three point stance, a position that give you maximum stability, balance and the ability to move in any direction. Imagine a football game, when a defensive linebacker is ready to move the moment before the ball is snapped.
So what is The 4th Point of Contact? Well, imagine now that same defensive linebacker the moment after he has sacked the quarterback. He’s got all four points on the ground, two hands and two knees. The 4th point of contact means truly being in control and having the upper hand.
In this series I’ll be talking to professionals from all fields, people who have mastered their craft and are truly in control of what they do. These are people who have not only used the themes from my book but taken them to the next level.
I’m honored and humbled to have Sascha Sharma as my first professional athlete on this segment. He is an amazing young man who overcame Gullian-Barre Syndrome as a teen to become one of the fastest rising MMA stars in Europe and around the world. He’s a native of Stuttgart, Germany, my home for the last 4 years, and was recently on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF 22).
Check out the video below, and be sure to tune in to Sasha’s next fight in St. Petersburg, Russia on April 9th. More info on that here.
