Ellis Karadag - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Name: Ellis Karadag
Sport : Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
I got into Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Thai boxing in the year 2011, I was 17 just getting out of high school. After a few short months I showed interest in fighting or some sort of competition. Being still relatively new to the sport it was recommended I do a grappling tournament of some sort since multiple opportunities were coming up. It would be good practice leading up to something a bit more serious like a mma fight scenario. Taking the next few weeks to only committing to Brazilian jiu-jitsu as best as I could changed my mindset on how much I enjoy it. Twice a week to just about everyday I became more addicted to training and doing my first competition winning in a 20 person bracket was a awesome time. Being so tired in a few minute compared to a training environment where I could train for hours. I slowly took striking out of my agenda and did gi ( uniform) and nogi competitions doing points and sub only rule sets going from weight classes from 135,145,155 170 and sometimes a open weight class division. When I was 18 I was able to get a instructor job teaching beginner adults and kids classes along with private/ small group classes and it quickly became more of my life then I thought training as full time as possible. 10 years later I’m in a similar position and haven’t looked back. Today in the year 2022 I’m a brown belt competitor out of the vault jiu-jitsu. Competing and having a active lifestyle made me want to look up a healthier lifestyle being active all of the time. Looking up the best foods and supplements to add to my life to prolong and share my knowledge on and off the mats to help me with my goals and the others around me.

Which Maca do you use:
I enjoy maca coffee and black maca powder. The premium and raw black maca powder along with the maca capsules. I use these to start my day with endless energy, for recovery and to strengthen bones and muscles.
What does Maca do for you:
I use maca powder supplements as a energizer and recovery supplement in my training on a daily basis. It also is packed with multiple B vitamins calcium and iron with other major benefits the human body needs.
The Maca Team has done a great job providing supplements on there website with multiple ways to partake in maca in liquid,powder and capsule form along with info and what’s best for you taking the short quiz on the website. I love that it’s essentially a multi vitamin and bcaa supplement for me in the most natural way possible. Maca has been around forever and I enjoy the red and black maca in liquid and capsule form!
