“The principles of jiu jitsu apply to every area of life. The critical thinking and physical skills one must develop in order to master the art of jiu jitsu are essential to combating the ever-present road blocks in life. A personal challenge can be an internal or social fear, a passionless job, or physical – like the pain of being overweight. Whatever the obstacle, jiu jitsu demands full present-moment awareness, which is the most transformational concept I’ve applied to my life to date. This reprogramming has allowed me to have a whole new outlook on life and the things I desire to accomplish. My quest is to spread the knowledge I have found to help transform the lives of many from the foundation up. To know the power of what we eat, what we think, and what we practice… that is my mission to share with the world.
