Gordon Ryan is arguably the best no-gi BJJ athlete of today. His grappling is spotless… But his mindset is outstanding as well.
Well, those who want to learn more about Ryan’s way of thinking and his secrets to success – as well as about “building a brand” – will be happy to hear that Ryan is writing a book about these topics!
He’s announced the news on Instagram:
I’m writing a book (with the help of a ghost writer).
This book is a book for everyone that will give insight into my upbringing… The way my mindset was shaped, the “secrets” to my success; and will be geared heavily towards younger people (specifically athletes) becoming successful and building brands that push not only them, but other athletes, as well as the entire sport in the direction we need it going.
There’s only 1 athlete In the sport (who doesn’t own a school) who makes real athlete money. And that is a problem. This book will be one of my ways of giving back to the future generations – and working to take the sport to new heights.
Gordon’s made it clear that this book is geared towards everyone, even those who don’t particularly like him as a person:
Even if you hate me, put your emotions aside. And understand that if you are broke, aspiring athlete in this sport, this can help you.
If you aren’t where you want to be in life, this can help you. And if you love me and want to know more about me, this will give you insights on how I was raised and where I come from. We are working out the kinks now and will have it ready soon.
