The Geo Martinez Interview: Mind, Body & All Things ADCC

Aug 8, 2019

In 2015 Geo Martinez was a brand new black belt trying to forge his (own unique) way through the competitive jiu-jitsu landscape. Entering into the the biggest competition in the world in the birth place of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, no one was expecting much from him. 

Two days later he would walk away with a fourth place finish but more importantly a renewed sense of belonging and validation that has sky-rocketed his confidence ever since. 

Martinez is now a veteran of the submission grappling game and with two ADCC’s under his belt he’s eager to show he has everything it takes to be the best in the world. 

In this twenty minute sit-down with the 10th Planet pioneer we discuss his preparation for ADCC, competing against legends like Jeff Glover, Paulo & Joao Miyao, and the most valuable lessons he learned while break dancing. We also got into the 10th Planet ethos, his upcoming appearance on KASAI Pro 6 and plenty more! Tune in to the whole interview above!
