Nine months later, Knickerbocker, 50, is down 12 pounds and living his best and healthiest life with the help of his training at Alvarez Jiu-Jitsu. In this clip, he shares a bit about his journey. His story is truly an inspiration for anyone who feels like jiu-jitsu isn’t for them or that it’s too late to change their unhealthy ways. Take a look!
