    EP 143 – Ray Freeman | One Community JJ Club Founder

    Meet Ray Freeman, a purple belt in Jiu-jitsu and One Community Jiu-jitsu Club leader in Kansas City, a donation-based program. Instead of standard monthly memberships or contracts, Ray fosters a sense of community by allowing individuals to contribute what they can, making Jiujitsu accessible to those who might otherwise be excluded.
    Ray's inspiration to establish the One Community Jiujitsu Club stemmed from a profound realization – beyond aiding in his weight loss journey, Jiujitsu became a transformative outlet that helped him heal from traumas associated with foster care, instilled humility, and provided a platform to connect with a diverse and vibrant group of professionals and individuals.
    Ray founded the One Community Jiu-Jitsu Club in 2020. It's made a remarkable impact, serving over 130 families in Kansas City. The club promotes respect, integrity, humility, and resilience, aiming to make Jiu-Jitsu accessible to all backgrounds.
    Ray's commitment extends to supporting black-owned businesses and philanthropy. He partners with CSA Farms and tutors young children, enriching lives beyond Jiu-Jitsu.
    His vision? Integrating Jiu-Jitsu into schools for wider access. Join Ray and the One Community Jiu-Jitsu Club in transforming Kansas City through Jiu-Jitsu's power.

Jorge, the co-founder of the Jiu-Jitsu For Life Team and the Next Gen Tournament in Canada, joins us again to delve deeper into his journey and philosophy in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Stay tuned right after jiu-jitsu tribe's message. OSS!

    EP 141 Chatri Sityodtong | ONE Championship CEO

    EP 141 Chatri Sityodtong | ONE Championship CEO

    Welcome to episode 141, today, we are excited to have Chatri Sityodtong, the founder, chairman, and CEO of ONE Championship, Asia's largest sports media property. 
    ONE ranked #2 overall in 2021 digital viewership with over 13.8 billion video views across Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok. It sits just behind the #1-ranked NBA, which boasts over 14.5 billion for 2021. The UFC is #5, with 6.6 billion.
    Chatri has over 35 years of martial arts experience as a student, fighter, teacher, and coach. He is a certified senior Muay Thai instructor under Kru Yodtong Senanan. I apologize if I'm not pronouncing it correctly. He also holds a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Master Renzo Gracie.
    For Chatri, the biggest misconception about martial arts is that it's about fighting. He believes that the true essence of martial arts is the journey of continuous self-improvement mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Through martial arts, Chatri inherited integrity, humility, honor, respect, courage, discipline, and more. Above all, it empowered him with an unbreakable warrior spirit to conquer adversity in life.
    Born in Thailand, his rags-to-riches life story has inspired millions worldwide on BBC, CNN, Financial Times, Bloomberg, and other media. At his lowest point, he survived on $4 per day in the United States. His only suitcase contained everything he owned, and he lived on one meal daily. Yet, he didn't grow up in poverty as a child in Thailand. Instead, Chatri grew up in a loving, well-to-do home. Life only changed when his parents lost everything in the Asian Financial Crisis. Poverty ripped his family apart. And his father abandoned the family, leaving Chatri to pick up the pieces as the oldest son.
    Chatri is a philanthropist, a motivational speaker, and a serial entrepreneur who has founded, invested in, or served as CEO of several successful companies, including ONE Championship and Evolve MMA. He holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA from Tufts University.
    In this episode, Chatri will share his insights on martial arts, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, the challenges and rewards of building a global sports media brand, and much more.
    So, get ready to learn from one of the most influential and inspiring figures in martial arts and business right after jiu-jitsu tribe's message. OSS!

    Welcome to episode 140! Today we have, for the second time, Thomas Rodzynski, 3rd Degree Black Belt, head instructor at the ROL Academy of Jiu Jitsu in Orland Parks, Illinois, and the co-host of The Rol Radio Podcast. I was a guest there on episodes 36 & recently, episode 142.
    Thomas began his journey in 2000 under the tutelage of the late Grandmaster Carlson Gracie Sr. in Chicago. Beyond his very technical skills, Professor Thomas is also known for his commitment to promoting the Jiu Jitsu lifestyle and helping others to develop their own skills and abilities. Through his leadership at the ROL Academy of Jiu Jitsu and his active presence on social media, he continues to inspire and guide practitioners of all levels, from beginners to seasoned competitors.

Wonderful podcast for jiu jitsu and life

I love this podcast. It's the perfect synthesis of jiu jitsu and personal development. I study with Shaolin in New York, so started with the wonderful BJJ Mental Coach episode 17. I had reason to write to Professor Gustavo, and then he also recommended I listen to episode 32 with Pedro Valente. What a fabulous discussion. Now I am hooked. I love the discussions with the guests, the gems like the book recommendations, the discussions of best habits, and much more. Thank you, Gustavo, I will keep learning from you.

I want to start my own business and this is helping me in different ways to help me apply things in real time so that I can accomplish my goals in life with confidence. Thanks, Gustavo and all of your previous and future guests who share their perspective and stories of struggle that help build confidence in many looking to do the same!
