What’s a martial artist and why is yoga a key tool for professional MMA fighters to bounce back from setbacks?🧐
In this podcast episode, I have the pleasure of interviewing Schyler Sootho, a Pro MMA Fighter out of Baltimore, Maryland, and the #4th ranked Pro Mens Lightweight in Virginia. He’s been fighting professionally since 2016 with a focus on Muay Thai and Jujitsu. He teaches at Ground Control in Columbia, a mixed martial arts gym. His next fight in November at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore.
