Ex-Commando Damian ‘Obi’ Todd is attempting an admirable feat. Damian ‘Obi’ Todd has been a Royal Marines Commando and ridden a hand-powered bicycle from New York to LA in the past. He’s now set his goals on achieving a new bjj World Record!
According to news.com.au/ :
“I’m a firm believer in individuals having goals, because then you have a reason and a purpose,” said Todd, who turned 48 the day before the event.
“I’m trying to do something ridiculously hard which is going to debilitate me for a day, but I will always have mental health issues.
“I address those by waking up in the morning and giving myself a reason to live.
“Of course it (the record attempt) is going to be physically horrendous.
“But I’ve got to just dig in and get the mind over matter when my muscles are cramping and I’m in pain.”
Todd will spend 24 hours in continuous Brazilian jiu-jitsu bouts with 228 different opponents at Prospect on Friday, February 22.
The world record attempt, which will be filmed and timed for Guinness verification, will take place at Chau Kaizen, 262 Prospect Rd, from noon.
