The first episode of our Daisy Fresh series was met with positive reviews from the community. Tons of fans tuned in and enjoyed the story of the young men living on the mats at Pedigo Submission Fighting. Our next episode will follow the guys as they travel from Mt. Vernon to Anaheim, California, for the IBJJF World No-Gi Championships.

Watch: Daisy Fresh Episode One

“Daisy Fresh is an incredible documentary! It shows how jiu-jitsu has so many different of people of people, and a very authentic, unique culture of people with a love and passion for jiu-jitsu.” — Mikey Musumeci

“Watching the documentary on the Daisy Fresh team was super inspiring and humbling. Some of us are blessed to have a home, let alone a room or bed for ourselves, and seeing all those scrap and live together under the same roof and on the mat is pretty sick. Shows that as long as you’re happy and growing something, you can be in any situation and make it a good one.” — Roberto Jimenez

“I guess the more jiu-jitsu gets McDojo’d, the more people need to see it done right, just for the love of jiu-jitsu. The film is cool, it’s a cool story. Just some guys from a little town in the Midwest.” — Murilo Santana

"As raw and real as it gets! A spot on documentary about some hardworking, crazy MOFO's that are on a mission!" - Dante Leon

"Watching the show about my Pedigo boys means so much to me. I feel proud to have always had their back since we met. I've connected a lot of the dots for those boys and I'm proud of what they're doing. I'll always have their back. Heath has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I've met. I'm excited to see what the future holds for these guys!." - Orlando Sanchez

“A true story of a group of guys at zero points in their lives and being rebuilt to better and stronger versions of themselves. Heath is not only building world champions at every age and belt level, but his bigger mission is rebuilding people and giving them hope and purpose to become better humans.” — Vincent “Bear” Quitugua

“Watching the guys watch the premiere of the first episode was something I’ll never forget. Seeing their faces as they proudly watched each other show and talk about their passion. So much goes into becoming great at something, so much more than just the success people see. This film shows what it really takes when you’re trying your hardest to work with what you’ve been given. The ups, the downs, and the memories you make chasing those dreams.” — Heath Pedigo
