Firefighter, Tony Tindell Reviews Grappling Mastery

You hear a lot of stories about returning Combat vets. They’re Angry, Drinking, Depressed or have PTSD; well I’m glad to say this isn’t me and there one very distinct reason for that, besides my wife; Grappling Mastery. I was still in Ghazni Afghanistan when I contacted Professor Ruscio initially. I explained my need for a coping mechanism upon my return and he offered to help. I’ve been training with Grappling Mastery for four month now, since returning from the battlefield. In addition to BJJ he taught me patience, diligence a bit of humility. I’m just not angry anymore, thanks to Brian & Rita not to mention the Blue Belts, Jorge & Chuck stopping mid roll to instruct me on how to defend their attack. Thanks to the peace & clarity I’ve found I’m presently back to work at my FD, cleared my medical directer, prepping for a promotional exam in 60 days and gearing up for the NAGA World Championships in NJ in less than two months! Professor and Coach Rita are absolutely awesome. They’ve cultivated a environment that makes training sessions feel like family gatherings, but with grappling. Jorge is going inverted again on Alec, Tom asking me why I don’t tap, Tracie’s trying to wrap up Torrie and Brian’s trying keep the bearded beast from sweeping him. We’re all sore & tired and I’m loving every bit of it. I recommend Grappling Mastery to any returning Combat Veteran. It’s a safe environment of respect & strategic grappling where you can roll, choke, and arm bar to hearts content, which quells the rage within. Call Brian, you’ll agree, first 30 days are free, nothing to lose and everything to gain. Respectfully, SGT Tony Tindell Army Medic Iraq 2003 Afghanistan 2014
