Professor Don Richard & Myles Jury
Pursuing Your Dreams
By: Don Richard
I am Myles Jury’s long time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA coach from back in his home state of Michigan. I have fought, competed and trained with some of the best martial artists in the world, and have trained many talented and successful competitors in MMA, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai over the past 17 years.
Finding Your Path
My path to pursuing my dreams began at seven years old. I was invited to attend a wrestling club practice by one of the neighborhood kids. I would attend practices over the next few months and liked training a lot, but when it came time to compete in the tournaments, my parents could not afford the entry fee. Eventually, I started to lose interest mostly because my interest was not being supported at home. This experience did form a foundation that would guide me to where I am now.
PREPARING FOR BUSINESS LIKE PREPARING TO FIGHT!
By Ross O’Donnell
As an MMA coach and trainer, I have had the opportunity and privilege of working with many UFC athletes. One such athlete is Myles “Fury” Jury, who will fight on UFC on FOX 16, July 25th, 2015. Myles and I spend as much time discussing business practices as we do MMA.
I have known Myles for about 3 years now. I first met him when he was invited to my club in Canada to teach an MMA seminar. I have had several MMA up and comers teach at my club but Myles was different. Many athletes can do but can’t teach. Myles is an exceptional athlete and an even better teacher. He has the ability to communicate to the youth in the room that life as a pro fighter isn’t all glamour and sure as heck wasn’t handed to him on a silver platter. I had Myles as a guest on my TV show and he openly talked about difficulties and overcoming obstacles, including injuries and being broke but the message received was life is what you make of it and it is yours to make… and so is business!
Rest is a weapon
by Myles Jury
Whenever I watch a mixed martial arts fight or boxing match, its always fun to do some research on fighters before the actual fight and see how their training was leading into the fight. Watching training videos is fun and very educational in my opinion, the different methods each fighters uses to get ready for war and how they prepare their bodies is a great way to pick up tips on training. I love watching fighters do crazy stuff leading up to the fight- like running up hills while pulling someone behind them, throwing thousands of punches a week on the heavy bag or bringing in tough sparring partners.

Personal Rapport, is what life is all about

From movie productions, musical plays, 2008 Billboard Awards, major television networks (HBO, Showtime, ESPN), major boxing events and a host of historical sports legends. That eventually lead to my 14 year career in MMA and the UFC. Working and teaching young athletes who make it to the top of their craft is an easy thing to do when you live by a creed that you teach.
I started my professional career in sports and entertainment, at a time I least expected it and was probably least prepared.
The biggest achievement is getting to that level, the hardest thing is staying there. That is why being the BEST you can be has to be BETTER than everyone else. The finish is not the end of the goal.

I remember growing up in Michigan like it was yesterday even though it was over 15 years ago. When I was a kid I loved to watch movies with lots of action, movies with Steven Seagal or Jean Claude Van Damme were some of my all-time favorites. Films like “Kickboxer” or “Hard to kill” I would watch over and over, sometimes daily. After a little while I started to notice a pattern with these movies. The main characters were always involved in some type of martial art (form of self defense). For example, “kick boxer,” Jean Claude Van Damme was a kickboxer competing against the best around. In “hard to kill,” Steven Segal used Aikido to take out the bad guy. After watching countless movies like these I decided to look into martial arts. Continue reading
A lightweight matchup is in the works for UFC on FOX 16 in Chicago on July 25 as former champion Anthony Pettis looks to bounce back from his recent loss as he faces Myles Jury in a pivotal matchup for both men at 155 pounds.
Dealing with Disappointment
by: Robert Kiyosaki
Successful people face and learn from disappointment
Myles recently asked me to write a guest blog for his site and I was more than happy to. You may know of me from my book Rich Dad Poor Dad that was on the New York Times personal-finance bestseller list for nearly seven years.
I had a “rich dad” who was my friend’s father, an entrepreneur, an investor, and my mentor growing up. I also had my “poor dad” who was the superintendent of education in Hawaii and my biological father. I learned a lot from both men but, in the end, I followed my rich dad’s advice. I love real estate investing (not that flipping crap) and business.

Who is your Teacher?
Nowadays with technology changing and getting more and more advanced we are bombarded daily with people selling us all kinds of different stuff. Everything from food to cars and more specifically EDUCATION. It’s so easy nowadays for anyone to say they can teach you XYZ, when in reality they are in no position to because they are not qualified enough. In my eyes the main things I look for in a teacher/coach to be qualified to teach me anything is: Continue reading
