Rob and Dave catch up with IBJJF Black Belt World Champion and all around stud Mahamed Aly. Many of us know him for his high flying throws, but in this interview, Mahamed reveals a humble and insightful martial artist looking to grow.
They start off the conversation going over his ADCC experience and working the rule set, before going deeper into the meaning of martial arts for him. From the search of happiness, how purpose changes during life, and what it takes to remain on top.
Mahamed also shares his goals with his social media followers, and how he hopes to be useful to the community he serves – a duty that many people have lost in the age of “what’s it in it for me?” and people focusing on making money instead of making happiness.
