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 nineteenth episode of the podcast, we are diving deep into the science behind martial arts training. On this episode, I speak with Muhsin Corbbrey. Muhsin is a 1st degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a Muay Thai Kru, Judo Black Belt, World, National, Regional & State Champion Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Fighter & a 3rd year Doctoral Student at the University of Arizona. 

On this episode, Muhsin dives deep into the neuroscience behind Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and combat martial arts training. He explains how dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine work together to impact our lives. Through training in martial arts, we can help regulate these chemicals in our body and live a healthier life.  

Muhsin breaks down why we need to take responsibility for our own mental health. He shares how training in combat martial arts has influenced his life off the mats and how they affect his students.
