We enjoy having the ability to give back to the members of our community. Congratulations to our latest contest winner, Robert Emmons, who has been a steady supporter of our efforts for years.
The wining submission was a screenshot captured from Rob’s InstaGram video (link below). We appreciate that Rob not only shares his love of Jiu Jitsu with fellow members of the armed forces but he also takes time out of his schedule to spread the Work Play Obsession mission and to promote The Process.
Congratulations Rob! Looking forward to being the “dummy” for your free private lesson with Max Gimenis.

When I first starting training Jiu Jitsu my focus was on self defense, competition, and wining everyday. I didn’t take one second to think about the benefits that Jiu Jitsu as a lifestyle could have, not only on one individual but on a community. Fast forward about 10 years and for me Jiu Jitsu has become something completely different and something much more impactful than a confidence builder and the ability to defend myself.
Physical health, mental health, social interaction, cognitive training are all interwoven into the fabric of Jiu Jitsu. In just a few sessions you meet people from all walks of life, with all different struggles and you bond. I like to say you build a community. As Jiu Jitsu continues to grow and become more mainstream a simple road trip can expand your network across the country and take you places you thought you would never travel. To me, this is the Jiu Jitsu lifestyle.
Remember, we are there to forget our stressors, and to be better than the version of ourselves from the previous day. Do what brings you happiness and helps you fight your battles. Our mission is to help you find that balance, surround ourselves with like minded individuals and to build a support network. Join the community and help us build the team beyond the mats.
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.
