On the 103rd episode of the Jiu-Jitsu Outlet podcast, I sit down with newly promoted Gracie Jiu-Jitsu blue belt Dr. Ricky Brown.

Dr. Brown has been on the podcast before when he first began training in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. On that episode, he spoke about how training in Jiu-Jitsu for a few months had helped his mental health and life off the mats in his career as a plastic surgeon.

You can listen to that first interview with Dr. Brown here:

In this episode, Dr. Ricky Brown talks about what it was like earning a blue belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and how that experience helped his mental health and personal development.

We spoke more about how Jiu-Jitsu training can help a person's life off the mats - especially if they are in a stressful career field. 

Dr. Brown discusses topics like quitting Jiu-Jitsu when you're a blue belt, the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu blue belt test, and a lot more.

In this episode, learn more about how Gracie Jiu-Jitsu training can help your mental health and life off the mats - especially if you're in a high profile career field like medicine.
