#63 | Austin Daffron & Alfred Murillo - Jiu-Jitsu & Improvement

Some people spend their whole lives pursuing mastery of a craft, doing whatever it takes to play, perform and evolve.

Austin Daffron is a fascinating Jiu-Jitsu athlete, in his early twenties he positioned himself to spend most of his time doing the things he loves rather than being caught-up in a conventional career. From the outside, you’d think Austin was lucky, however he is tenacious and very analytical which lends itself to unique opportunities within any endeavor.

Alfred Murillo has committed a great deal of himself to Jiu-Jitsu, in the name of pursuing what excites him. He is voraciously integrating technique and is an assistant professor for kids Jiu-Jitsu at Livewire MMA.

We speak with Austin about his approach to Jiu-Jitsu, Learning new technique, competing, strategy, and being effective.
