It's not easy running an $85 billion market cap company. 

With all the demands on his time, PayPal (PYPL) CEO Dan Schulman has found an out to escape (briefly) from it all. That is by regularly practicing krav maga, which is a military self-defense program developed for the Israel Defense Forces. In other words, hardcore martial arts.

"For me, martial arts have been apart of my life for a long time,' Schulman explained to TheSreet. "What I love about martial arts is not just the physical part of it, but also the philosophy that comes out of it that enables you to think about the situations that you face in a very clear way."
 
Schulman added, "A lot of people tend to fight, or flight, but in many ways you just want to take a step back and understand the situation and approach it in a cool, calm and collected way."
 
Schulman will be a featured speaker at TheStreet's May 5 "Investor Boot-Camp" conference. Quickly register here, you don't want to miss this one.
