Jason Khalipa, World Champion Crossfitter gets a lesson in intimidation and performance from a tribe in New Zealand.
Jason brought his expertise and worked with Dollamur Sports surfaces to create a Mat that is perfect for Crossfit and Fitness gyms.
San Jose Sensei Memorial Tournament, held Sunday February 9th, shows a familiar scene of shoes next to a line of tatamis. This, a byproduct of clean mats next to dirty floors is a staple of Judo tournaments held in every venue in the world. Dollamur Mats is proud to support the growth of Judo, along with every organized Martial art that teaches discipline, physical fitness, and mental awareness. Keep Training Hard and Shoes OFF!

Boxing Is Part of the Former X Games Skateboarder's Workout
Radio host Jason Ellis showed up to a friend's wedding while recuperating from two broken arms in six months. He left determined to learn mixed martial arts.
Mr. Ellis, the 42-year-old host of SiriusXM's "The Jason Ellis Show," met mixed martial artist and kickboxer Kit Cope at the wedding of motocross racer Carey Hart and the pop star Pink eight years ago. Mr. Ellis, a former X Games skateboarder, had a separated shoulder and "was just really out of shape" from spending half a year recovering from the two falls off his dirt bike that broke his arms.
Right after the wedding, the two men went to Las Vegas, where Mr. Ellis tried muay thai—a combat sport from Thailand that includes punches, kicks and elbow strikes—for the first time, he says. "Kit showed me some kicking and punching, then came on my radio show and invited me to try MMA," he says.
