Submitting the Stigma of Mental Health in Martial Arts With Erin Herle
By Sonny Brown
I talk to Erin Herle, Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt & Founder of #submitthestigma. Submit the Stigma is a mental health advocacy group, so we discuss the work they do and the interplay, boundaries and roles that Jiu-Jitsu training can play in mental health and the mental side of competition and fighting. We also discuss becoming confident, having a strong self-belief, how to build beneficial connections with training partners through communication, becoming confident and Erin's own BJJ & MMA competition experiences.
