1. I spent around 7 years in the U.S. Marine Corps as an infantry man and I deployed to Iraq in 2007 and Afghanistan in 2008 and saw quite a bit of combat on those two tours. I was diagnosed with PTSD/TBI and discharged in 2012 for those two illnesses and I was having a pretty hard time until I found BJJ.
I was taking up to 12 pills a day for my treatment while I was active duty on top of therapy a few times a week. I got out and my life was starting a slow downward spiral until a friend I served with got me to check out my current gym and the rest is history. I have lost about 30 pounds and keep losing more, I haven’t had to go to therapy or use any medication for my PTSD.
