Tommy McKay is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He and Doug met training in Austin and in this episode talk about combat, martial arts, masculinity and how it all might relate to Catholicism. But, since they aren't experts, they make no warranties. But, the intersection of these subjects doesn't have many experts anyway. Some of the articles they discuss in The Christian Boxer by Fr. George Rutler and Why MMA Strips Human Dignity by Fr. Mike Schmitz. And here is the quote Tommy references about St. Gregory of Nazianzus. The sponsor for this episode is The Eddie Mortgage Team.
