I love to take time to talk to the high level athletes in Jiujitsu. I think it is important to hear them out and their thoughts, ideas, etc in reference the sport. I am grateful when one of them agrees to take the time to answer questions I have. In this interview, Tim Spriggs of Crazy 88 took time out of his schedule to do this interview. Not only is Tim an awesome athlete, but also an overall great person.
