This week we're joined by Mandy Schneider! Mandy is an up-and-coming young competitive Jiu-Jitsu athlete training out of Dallas, Texas. Despite her young age, she's no stranger to adversity: Mandy has been very vocal about her personal experiences with the dark side of Jiu-Jitsu, including her battles with predatory instructors and mental health.
Recently, Mandy shared that she "lost sight of herself for awhile" due to the pressures from full-time competition and her personal life. In this episode, Mandy shares her experience and explains how she came back and regained her passion for the sport.
