EP 52 – There is No Glory Without Sacrifice | Ares BJJ Co-Founder Samir Chantre

Samir Chantre is a third-degree black belt, 3-time IBJJF No-Gi World Champion, and the co-founder of Ares BJJ Association.

He shared his struggles about running his school, he talked a lot about perseverance, and mentioned the best advice he has ever received “There is no glory without sacrifice.”, which inspired the title of this podcast.

Stick around for my final thoughts after the interview ( [1:07:50]) when I share with you a concept from the best selling book “Grit: the power of passion and perseverance” by Angela Duckworth, since it was the main topic of the interview.
