Learning thru Play and Connected Coaching w/ Kabir Bath

Today I’m joined by BJJ black belt Kabir Bath. Kabir is one of the early success stories in the ecological jiu jitsu movement, and he has the distinction of a commercially successful gym, too—especially a large children’s program.

In this episode, we explore the value and effectiveness of learning through play, as well as the vitalness of coaches connecting personally with their students, big and small.

More About Kabir…

Professor Kabir Bath began practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu in 2006 and discovered his passion for coaching soon after.  Driven by a desire to help others exceed their personal expectations through jiu jitsu, he opened Kaboom Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Surrey, B.C. in 2012. 

As a dedicated coach and active competitor, Professor Kabir is committed to helping both adults and children achieve their goals, whether they are simply to stay fit and have fun, or to become a world champion.  In 2018, Professor Kabir was awarded his black belt by Professor Rafael Lovato Jr.
