What Brazilian Jiujitsu will teach men about power with Robert Wunderlich

Robert Wunderlich

Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

Human beings have always been an amazing animal to study, from their cultures to their abilities. Today's guest, Robert Wunderlich knows it well. He is not just well-knowledged in anthropology; he's also a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu who after kicking your ass may have a pleasant conversation about human culture and their social manifestations with you.

In this episode, Robert told us about how martial arts movies started his passion for Jiu-Jitsu, why he loves teaching others, and the bond in the martial arts community. Also, I asked him a loaded question where his answer was: "Nothing lasts forever".

Do not miss this episode where anthropology and Jiu-Jitsu get mixed and create a fascinating perspective.
