EP 51 – Stroke From Chokes | Nova Gyms Co-Owner Chris Martin

Chris Martin is the owner of two academies called Nova Gyms In Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The main reason why he was interviewed on the podcast was not because of his business, but for the intention of bringing awareness to the jiu-jitsu community about a very delicate and rare topic, stroke from chokes, since in 2017, he suffered a massive brain stroke from a choke.

We did talk about entrepreneurship as well; however, as I mentioned, the intention of this interview is to bring awareness to this matter.

Stick around for my final thoughts after the interview. Today I don’t have too much to share with you on this topic during the final thoughts. I’m not a doctor, and neither has experienced anything close to it. If you would like to learn more about this issue, the best thing is for you to listen to Chris’ interview and to research more online.
