Here’s what 8x US Chess Champ, 2x Thai Chi Push Hands World Champ and Brazilian Ju Jitsu Black Belt Josh Waitzkin says about working with Erik:
Erik is a dear friend, a world-class human, a dude whose passion for life and water and relentless learning inspires to no end. He’s also a brilliant coach–that rare combination of: 1) all-in artist, expanding, every day, the outer limits of his own level, 2) a conceptual mind that weaves fluidly between technical nuance and broader principles, and 3) a finely-tuned nose for the essence of a student’s growth edge. Training with Erik is an honor and an absolute blast. – Josh Waitzkin
