Why I'm not man enough to go “full spats

Why Matt loves working with other brands

Why grappling spats are so addictive

How he stays focused and productive

His advice for people looking to live a fun and productive life

Plus a lot more…

  1. Another great episode, Brendan!

    I just got my Scramble spats in (from the BJJHQ deal) and will go “fully spatted” tonight. The only problem is convincing myself that I’m NOT the Tōbikan Jūdan, just because I’m wearing them!

    I think Scramble should be required to have warning labels on their spats… Just sayin’…
