In episode 20, Tim Carpenter and I talk with Marco Perazzo, a BJJ black belt, head instructor of NJMA. We talk about comic books, how Tim and Marco met, evolution of jiu jitsu, BJJ in the Philadelphia area, old Maxercise days, how the world sees you when you’re fat, podcasting, being true to yourself, friendship, loyalty, coaching, the value of competition, not dwelling on the past, the Trolley problem, and more.
Marco introducing Tim:
“I heard it said that Tim is like an onion: no matter how deep you get, it’s still onion, it stinks, it makes you cry. And I found that to be the exact opposite.”
Tim on not caring what strangers think:
“It’s part of being a man: being who you are regardless of what other people think.”
