Little did Rex Hardin know when he woke up the morning of June 27th he only had a 2% chance of living. His day started like any other with no signs or symptoms that later that day he would end up out cold on the jiu-jitsu mat followed by waking up in an ambulance.
It was fate that Jordana Taji, Emergency Room Nurse at Orange Park Medical Center and Rex met on June 27th. Both members of Knuckle Up Martial Arts & Fitness typically attend different jiu-jitsu classes but due to a scheduling conflict for Jordana they ended up in the same class that evening. Their paths truly crossed when Rex suddenly collapsed face down onto the floor and Jordana sprang into action.Media Coverage
