I came across this article it is very cool and I think the mission this warrior has under taken using the mixed martial arts is awesome..

"A San Diego veteran is getting national attention for his unique approach to treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.)
Todd Vance founded Pugilistic Offensive Warrior Mixed Martial Arts (POW MMA) in North Park. The organization will be featured Thursday on HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”
The group is comprised of active duty military and veterans. While it may seem strange to treat PTSD with cage fighting, Vance said it actually makes sense.
