  • Sunday, you're given a seminar here in London.

  • Now, that's not different because you travel the world teaching people this knowledge.

  • Like you said, all this knowledge we've accumulated wrestling back on Jiu jitsu.

  • I mean, you were hanging out with Gracie's before the UFC was started when we would talk more about that later.

  • I'd love to hear your thoughts on the UFC, but you're given the seminar on Sunday on breathing breath from breath work from nine AM until five PM Breath work only, and I want to know more about it.

  • And you mentioned it last time and I heard you say it.

  • But it went in one year out the other.

  • Or maybe you so deceiving me, I don't know.

  • And since then I picked up a few other pieces and we had him off the ice man in here, and I saw him do some breath work.

  • And funny enough, we had a super focus group.

  • On Friday 100 of our London Realtors came our academy members came and I led them in like a 25 breath breath work exercise.

  • Two of them, and collectively in the room.

  • Something powerful happened.

  • Steve, I don't know what it was.

  • But when I do the breathing on my own, it's good.

  • But when I do it in a room with these people, something shifted and I thought I should ask you about it.

  • Since you probably have forgot more about breath work than most people know, What is it about the breath?

  • It's important.

  • When did you realize it and what can you tell us?

  • I was actually later in life when I really got serious about it.

  • I was always aware of, you know, breathing and breath work as Marshall is a physical education major and then as a wrestler and so forth.

  • You know, I mean everyone's experience, that that horrible feeling of being winded or out of breast, which evoke a real panic response.

  • The first time I became acutely aware breathing was training with the Gracie's and the manager picture.

  • Gracie was real breath masters, while was being probably the greatest expression of Brazilian jiu jitsu, possibly just whoever.

  • Some people might argue that Kimora and maybe my Ada, who taught that Gracie's would be right up there.

  • But certainly Hixon would stand out as one of the greatest way have footage of him in modern times and we can see it.

  • But But all his brothers also were privy to a lot of the same information, and I would hear them when they're training and wrestling, breathing in this particular stuff.

  • But they weren't teaching it as a top, okay?

  • And all I know is that they weren't out of breath and I waas Part of that was the technique.

  • I would watch Hickson and toys and Oiler literally wrestle an entire room full of people during seminars and not be out of breath.

  • I'm thinking, How can they do that?

  • What are they doing?

  • And they weren't teaching.

  • Now they are Dictionary.

  • See, in all these seminars now actually does, like an hour and a half to two hours sometimes of just breath work before you even start doing these years.

  • It's really and he's famous in the movie Choke for doing that breathing, you know, sequence in the movie were using moving this stomach is collapsing and he's doing that breaking piece, you know, that's an epic piece.

  • You know, I'm a really into superheroes.

  • There was a really cool where he's teaching Dr Banner, The Incredible Hulk breathing to calm down, you know?

  • He's like, You know, he's hiding out from the world in the Amazon and he meets this spiritual, uh, martial arts guru teaches him how to breathe.

  • OK, that takes an awesome, but that that's, you know, that was riel life.

  • It was he was playing himself in that movie.

  • But the point is this sitting chair, sitting and sedentary lifestyle of America and most of the industrialized countries in the world you would have to include, You know, Japan.

  • Certainly the U K Germany and so forth.

  • People are no longer breathing.

  • Dive dramatically.

  • A lot of people are inhaling through the mouth breathing and upper chest where the panic receptors are, and they're not bringing the breath down into the lower lobes of the lungs.

  • The lower lobes of the long is where the calming of receptors are.

  • It keeps you calm even in an emergency, and it's a great advantage to be able to warn, to breathe into this Laura lobes of the lungs all the time.

  • Even during athletic training, especially in combat.

  • Now the Russians have this system of martial arts.

  • It's actually called the systems to stem a where it's all based on the breath they claim.

  • It comes from way back to the ancient Christian mocks who were defending Christendom against the influence.

  • You know, the Tatars, the Mongolians and all these Russia was always constantly invaded by all these different guys and these Christian monks about their own martial art.

  • They're similar to the Shaolin box, but it's interesting because the Shaolin monks use the same type of breathing.

  • The yogis use the same type of breathing the prana yama.

  • You'll find it.

  • She calm key kung fu, Russians sistema and Brazilian jiu jitsu.

  • Now where they learned it, I don't know.

  • But that's when I first became aware of it.

  • So I started independently, are coming up with similar to and I'm just I'm thinking that, you know, all great minds think alike.

  • People came up with the same conclusion.

  • Same ideas all over the world, similar but slightly different.

  • So I started looking into the breathing thing a lot, and I first went to the systemic guys were studying with up in Toronto vitamin of Vasilyev.

  • Later with Michael React Co.

  • And Moscow took a lot of workshops.

  • I went down to crash Nodar.

  • There was another type of system Is more than one type of system Uh, actually election, which could national cough.

  • Is it like an old man?

  • A lot of people credit him with the Russian military martial arts style, but, uh, these were different things.

  • I looked into myself as a student.

  • I've studied Yogi Yoneyama, Dr Pasta bod.

  • There's a aerobatic physician in New Mexico.

  • He also has a clinic in India somewhere.

  • But I went to a workshop in New Mexico and he taught me 13 different ways.

  • A breathing for different health aspects.

  • So I've been piecing this stuff together course because of my affiliation with the Russians to stem a guys I ran into the boutique.

  • Oh, who was?

  • But Jaeger was a Russian physician who treated his patients with specific breathing.

  • And you know all these things together.

  • It kind of made see match.

  • Well, version Okay, but eight hours of reading Don't the students want that?

  • They want some Steve Maxwell.

  • Well, way we test him for Okay, First we find out What kind of breathing or are you convict killer intercostal.

  • You die formatting.

  • How do you tell me if there's a little test you can do, you just ask people debris and just observe their structure.

  • OK?

  • And once you determine what kind of breather they are, are the inhaling through the nose of their mouth, Then you teach them.

  • Oh, then you measure How many times a minute there breathing.

  • There's a test called the control pause or some people call it the boat test body Oxygen level test.

  • How long can you comfortably hold your breath on the excel?

  • Yeah, not to you bleed from the eyes.

  • It's not only competitive, but on the actual you just time herself to see how long it is until you feel like you really want to breathe.

  • And then you should be able to resume normal breathing or you pushed it too hard.

  • That tells a lot about a person's general health and their co two tolerance.

  • It also tells you how while the tissues are being oxygenated.

  • So very simple little test that people don't even do it.

  • Huh?

  • Once you have this information, then you can start to prescribe breathing exercises to help them improve that bolt.

  • Score that body oxygen level test because if they have a short, short time frame between the breath, it means that the breathing is very inefficient and they're not getting the proper oxygen.

  • Like we could argue all day about diets, Let's say, for example, high carb, low carb, you know, different nutrients.

  • I mean people blah, blah, bother.

  • It almost turns into a fistfight, sometimes with Mediterranean versus Paleo versus Eskimo versus Vegan.

  • I mean, it just goes on and on, but I think we all could agree that we need calories, proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

  • Some people even argue, not need, Corp.

  • I think we would definitely agree that you definitely need water, but the one nutrient people are not talking about his oxygen, okay?
