The Power of Martial Arts & Conscious Commitment to Optimization w/Nick Gregoriades
By Jay Campbell
April 16th, 2019
For men today, we encounter so much in our day-to-day trying to get our attention, leading us away from our innate, raw, masculine essence. Why is it so important to reconnect with our physicality? Why are practices like meditation and changing your language so beneficial in optimization? On this episode, I’m joined by founder of the Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood, Nick Gregoriades. We have a deep conversation about what we can do to overcome our “lizard brain” thinking and all the things that hold us back.
When practiced intelligently, martial arts allows you to express a very raw, masculine principle of domination. -Nick Gregoriades

Listen to the Episode on YouTube:
Nick and I discussed how martial arts can help you overcome your ego, and the importance of being physically centered. Next, we talked about meditation and why most people need to practice it for at least 40 minutes a day. We also discussed plant medicine and the insights Nick got from taking it, and how language and words can limit your reality. We also talked about dark nights of the soul, hitting rock bottom and why that is so necessary in spiritual development. We also discussed:
- Why you have to stop caring what people think of you
- Benefits of yoga
- How to gain success without sacrificing your soul
With so many things competing for our attention, clogging our brains and blocking our spiritual growth and development, it’s so important for us to ground ourselves physically. The body and the spirit are connected, and any time we neglect the body, we also compromise our souls. What also gets in the way are practices that are constructed by ego and greed. The way to win the game is to overcome those instincts and do the inner work. If we’re committed to taking the action and staying the course, we can achieve incredible things.
