Earlier this week Jiu-jitsu Black belt and MMA pioneer Joe Camacho passed away. Joe woke up to a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital Monday morning where he was later declared dead. This is sad news as Joe was someone I personally knew and thought highly of. Joe was a positive and influential person who I know for a FACT changed and inspired many people. As sad as it is for me to see him go, I know in many ways he's still here with all of us through his teachings. His legacy will carry on with all those he taught the art of Jiu-jitsu and bought up in the MMA circuit. Most importantly one thing I believe we all learned from Joe is how to extend a helping hand to encourage others in reaching their dreams.
