AFSP Rollathon 2019

Yesterday we participated in the rollathon in support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The turnout was amazing and I can’t express enough how much I appreciate everyones support towards such an important cause. Attached is the podcast we recorded prior to the event stay tuned for a post event recap!

Interview with my good friend Pasha Palanker at The Compound in Silver Spring, Maryland. We discuss our mutual interest in building a community for camaraderie and support to active duty, veterans, LEO, first responders, and survivors of domestic terrorism. Some great introductory discussion about depression, PTSD, and those who are suffering in silence.

Our interview with current IBJJF Black Belt World Champion, Mahamed Aly. Great conversation about Mahamed’s journey from a child in Brazil to the top of the podium and the mindset required to compete at the highest levels of Jiu Jitsu. Don’t miss our interesting discussions about fear management and giving back to your community, Jiu Jitsu’s impact larger than competition.
