The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“You can sit there and wallor about it ‘like I almost died.’ Or, you can be the person who says ‘how can I use this to make myself better?” That’s the question Jay Jackson asked after he was held at gunpoint for nearly 90 minutes.  


SpartanUp Combat Series host Ryan Warner talks with Jay about the harrowing experience that changed his life: when Jay was in college, he was held at gunpoint for nearly 90 minutes before turning the tables on his aggressor.  That moment shaped Jay’s life and in this episode you’ll learn...


-How to use the scariest and most painful of moments to find your true North

-Why wrestling provided both the mental and physical tools to learn from the experience

-What did Jay do in the days following the attack?

-Why is he grateful to have had the experience?
