Introducing Kodi Dick: From the streets of Michigan to the championship stage of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

From the streets of Michigan to the championship stage of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
How this 20 year old athlete turned things around…
 
We’d like to introduce you to our newest sponsored athlete Kodi Dick, a 20 year old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter, who trains under Ronaldo Candido at ATOS Michigan (https://www.rcabjj.com/) located in Novi Michigan.
At a young age Kodi came to the decision that he needed to learn self-defense, having grown up around violence, abuse, bad influences, and being constantly surrounded by people and things completely inconsistent with the goals he had for himself.
Thanks to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and his incredible mentor Ronaldo Candido he was able to change his life in many ways. Through Jiu-Jitsu he gained more confidence, courage, mental strength, discipline and focus. 
Aside from the inward growth, he now has the skills to defend himself and others responsibly. In fact, not too long ago, he was involved in an altercation where he was confronted by a much larger individual with a knife. It was literally life or death at that moment and I was able to use his training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu to defend himself. And he’s still standing here today to tell his story and help others.

His journey started one day when his mother came home with a business card for a local Brazilian jiu-jitsu club. He was intrigued and went all-in. Within 3 weeks he was competing at his first competition and never looked back.  Since then, he has exploded into the competition scene taking any and every fight that he can, taking home countless trophies and awards. He is determined that he WILL be a World Champion.

Kodi believes whole-heartedly that none of this would be possible without his inspiring team and coach who not only taught him the martial arts skills and the fact that there is no "I" in team, he also introduced him to BodyHealth and he amazing product PerfectAmino.
PerfectAmino has become an integral component in his training, development and recovery.  Prior to taking PerfectAmino, Kodi was constantly tired & fatigued, struggling with recovery and was always sore.  Since finding PerfectAmino he says that his energy is “Level-10” and he can fight all day with no soreness “as if I never stepped on that mat. It's unbelievable”.
Kodi told us that the first time he used PerfectAmino, he fought at 100% for six ten-minute rounds with only 2 minute rest in between, which he stats is INSANE! 
We are very happy to have Kodi standing behind our product and we can't wait to see where this journey takes him, all the while standing behind him with as much support as we can provide.

If you’ve ever seen someone coming out of a sauna, you’ll notice their skin is often flushed. Flushing happens when blood flow to the skin increases.

But it’s not just the skin. It’s everywhere. Saunas open up all the tiny little capillaries in all the peripheral tissues, improving cardiovascular health on every level. Research shows saunas reduce risk of cardiovascular disease 64%, coronary heart disease 48%.
