For most veterans, returning to civilian life is the hardest part of coming home. PTSD and other mental illnesses can take a toll that many don’t have the skills to handle. Today, you’ll hear how one Air Force veteran is working to better that.
Welcome back to Warriors Unmasked! We sit down to talk with Professional MMA fighter and former Air Force combat controller, Connor Matthews. Connor takes us on an incredible journey from growing up with ADHD and the sports that kept him focused, to fighting in Afghanistan and those same practices that brought him peace after returning home.
Listen in as Connor talks about the benefits of sports in the lives of people dealing with ADHD and how learning that discipline at a young age lead him to become an elite member of the U.S. Air Force. We talk about his life after service, the struggle of finding a new normal, and how martial arts gave him the skills to deal with his PTSD and live life with a new purpose.
