The Art of Aliveness, Fundamentals & Functional Delivery Systems With Matt Thornton

By Sonny Brown

I talk to Matt Thornton. Matt is the founder of Straight Blast Gym International or SBG and is a 4th-degree BJJ Black Belt under Chris Hauter. We discuss how coming up in the 90s lead him to emphasise training against resisting opponents in a concept he outlines further called Aliveness. Also, how cross-training in multiple arts can teach you the delivery systems of each style while also identifying the common themes between them all, which can then be considered fundamentals. And finally, how real-life testing can lead to scepticism and critical thinking to help you identify the truths found in martial arts.  Listen On -  Apple: https://apple.co/3hRHlDg Spotify: https://spoti.fi/32Sc0Kl
