Do you roll?


  1. Starting junior year in high school wrestling I had long grown out bangs in the front, and it was literally impossible to keep them out of my face. I thought the headgear would keep them down, no chance. That was the end for about 15 more years, now I will heed Chris’ advice when I get back on the mat!

  2. I really enjoyed listening in on the podcast while building out the blog post, thanks Chris!

    Chris is such a cool dude. He’s the epitome of D.I.A.L.E.D.

    It was a real pleasure to shoot this pod with him

  4. I do not roll but when I do for the first time i hope its not Chris I’ve got to deal with! Certified badass.

  5. I don’t roll but I’ve always wanted to learn. Great podcast boys! Loved hearing the military stories.
