The best thing about the IBAHpodcast is absolutely all the friendships we have created and deepened as a result of a few recording sessions. Not only do we get to meet new people, but we get to learn so much more about those closest to us.
We originally met Bain (we say "bah-een", you probably say "bayn") through BJJ and as a result have become a small part of his journey founding bainstore.com. It's such a unique concept combining real artwork and clothing in a very special and interesting way.
Not only that but today is a double header! We also have our other good friend and sponsor (and Bain's missus herself), Lauren Roerick, founder of The Undepression Project on the show too.
As we're releasing this on the 25th December, we'll also wish you a Merry Christmas. Whatever you do during the holiday period and whatever it means to you, it's still just a great excuse to get together with family and friends, enjoy some great food, and hopefully avoid fighting one another, even just for a day.
This is our last episode until 2017! It's been an amazing year for the show and we can't wait to keep it going in the new one!
This week we bring you another very special guest. BJJ black belt and coach "Mineiro" is a long time friend of our club, and an inspirational character to have on the mats with us. We get a little into the philosophy of BJJ, team spirit, loyalty and the lifestyle of a martial artist in this episode.
We've wanted to have Marcelo on for a while so we hope you enjoy the episode as much as we did!
This is a festive episode complete with sleigh bells.
Discover the real story of Christmas as told by Helene, as well as family traditions and tasty holiday food. Turns out lying to your kids about Santa isn't a thing where Helene comes from. Aaron also explores all the other lies he's believed in during his childhood.
After a well deserved rest for Aaron after his fight last week, we're back with a reflection on the stress we've been through in the last month running up to his MMA comeback.
In this episode, we visit not only the difficulties of getting mentally ready as a fighter but also of accompanying a fighter to the cage on fight day.
We both go through some stressful moments in our childhood and how we overcame them in our own ways and we finish off with Helene's best dad joke, beautifully delivered, of course.
