Jim Wallin, a Jiu-jitsu practitioner in Wisconsin, went into cardiac arrest while in class. His life was saved because other Jiu-jitsu practitioners were at his aid and knew what to do. 

On Oct. 27, Jesse Rein, gym owner and head instructor, and four other students were awarded the American Red Cross Certificate of Merit for using life-saving skills to administer CPR and directing others to call 9-1-1.

Doctors told Wallin he would never train or compete in Jiu-jitsu again, but Wallin proved them wrong.

“Want and will. Grit and determination. I missed one class. To support my brothers and sisters here,” Wallin said.
