Dr. Ricky Brown "TheRealTikTokDoc" Interview - "It's Given Me Peace Of Mind"

Training in martial arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Judo, wrestling, & Muay Thai is my outlet for improving my mental health and becoming a better person.

On this twenty-fourth episode of the podcast, I talk to Dr. Ricky Brown. Dr. Brown is a plastic surgeon in Arizona, social media influencer, father, and a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu white belt. 

On this episode, Ricky discusses how training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu alongside his sons for a few months has changed his life. We talk about the peace of mind that self defense training has given him. Ricky and I discover we both have a background of training in CrossFit which sparks a conversation about the benefits of training in CrossFit vs. a martial art like BJJ.

Ricky shares about how training in Jiu-Jitsu has helped his two autistic sons. He talks about how his sons have wanted to start training in grappling everyday. We discuss the value that Jiu-Jitsu has for people on the autism spectrum.

On this episode, you will learn about how training in self defense and basic Jiu-Jitsu can change a person's life in only a few short months.

This is an episode you do NOT want to miss.
