sweet. thats awesome for him to be able to do that. Man I would get choked out in a sec by that guy in blue.

That was really humbling.

Seen him in a few Gracie videos (he also wears the Gracie Gi). Yea I’m sure to an immature person this is funny, but what this guy has to be dealing with in his head is possibly the most frustrating thing ever. He seems to know what he needs to do, but just can’t get his body to do it.

The other guy is clearly being nice and not running through him, and that’s awesome.

Wow!!! very impressive! It is one of those lose, lose situations though. If you beat his ass on the mat then you are an asshole, but if he kicks your ass you are a p****. But I am still impressed with his determination. He obviously has great coaches to motivate him and also to even take him on as a student. some people complain about the littlest things in order to skip out on training. This guy has a no excuses policy. OSS!!!

Imagine if he got choked out cold that would probably F*** his head up real good. Good for him though

mystiso Says, in 6-22-2012 at 17:03:58 from    

This is not impressive. We all need to come to terms with our limitations, handicaps, or whatever other attributes that determine what things we should pursue in our life, and those we should not. It is barely noble to do something that you have business doing. You can say I’m a dick; but, I’m just goddamn realistic.

@Thomas… Yeah, totally agree that the other guy was a great sport. That is what I found to be so awesome about the match. I’m glad the guy with Cerebral Palsy got out there despite his affliction, but find it even more amazing that a fighter has the patience and humility to not, as you say, just “run through him”. I’d like to shake that guys hand.

That dude would totally get cut in the ufc though.

The reality is you would get choked out by that guy loser.You are the worst kind of person I hope you get cancer.

That guy is amazing.He’s doing a combat sport when he has something that makes people be in wheelchairs.And he’s pretty good.Sure people probably go easy on him but you can also see he always knows what to do,he just can’t always do it physically.

dankarelli Says, in 6-22-2012 at 19:56:18 from    

mystiso, you are not being realistic, you are being an insensitive asshole. The point isnt about winning, i’s about TRYING. He wants to TRY. He gives his HEART (something that you lack judging by your comment). He probably KNOWS he will lose but he tries it ANYWAYS because you only have 1 life, and you do what you can with it. He tries, he loses, but he’s the f****** MAN because of it. There’s a MUCH greater message here than just some tournament, and it’s that message which you are missing (but clearly so many other people get).

Some people complain about their situation and limitations. Other people accept them, engage anyhow and perservere even in the face of certain defeat. This is called courage. And yet others still find a way to criticize and condemn a level of courage they know nothing about. Those people are called cowards.

Hi guys,fair playtothe fella.

eucanlykthis Says, in 6-22-2012 at 23:15:28 from    

i understand what your saying and agree completely. dont listen to these other guys. its great to see someone strive towards their goals despite having to overcome tremendous hurdles, but unfortunatley on this occasion the hurdles are insurmountable and this guy would surely benefit from investing his time in something more worthwhile. with that sort of determination he could achieve great things if he focused his efforts toward something more suitable. very inspirational regardless.

ATTWPB Says, in 6-23-2012 at 01:44:16 from    

@mystiso and Eucanlykthis.

You both are morons, jiu jitsu is probably the only motivation or passion that he has, and of course him and his coaches know that he won’t get nowhere with jiu jitsu, but he can’t probably get a job or go to school either, and instead of being a lazy bastard negative moron like you guys, he found the way to better himself doing jiujitsu.

I bet neither of you both practice jiu jitsu, I can just tell reading your comments that you both are just dicks that never see the positive side of situations and just hate on people because they do something that you wish you did! Get off your ass and try to get a purple belt and see how hard it is…

Dave Says, in 6-23-2012 at 03:04:35 from    

amazing for him to be able to do that, but lets be honest I think its hard for any contender to try to be themselves and actually try their best against him. I have great respect for him to be able to do this despite physical limitation he has but it might be better if he just practice it and enjoy it rather than compete against others that probably won’t try against him.

Silverblunt Says, in 6-23-2012 at 06:38:45 from    

I got all tearyeyed. Jitz is beautifull.

ryeboi Says, in 6-23-2012 at 09:13:05 from    

in a sport that encourages opportunism at it’s highest level of competition, and by that i am mean exploiting your opponents weakness so that you can gain advantage of a split second to possibly fracture their bones or damage a joint, i find it strange to see this type of generosity.

GetItOn Says, in 6-23-2012 at 15:49:38 from    

IDK, part of me would like for his opponent to go easy on him and the other part wants his opponent to just finish him quick. One thing you will learn from people with disabilities is that they want to be treated equally and if his opponent goes easy on him, not only will the guy in blue learn even more slowly, his jits, but he will obviously also not be treated equally.

Genghis Khan Says, in 6-24-2012 at 18:02:45 from    

Tremendous respect for this guy. Even if his record is 100 loses with zero wins the fact that he’s doing this with his handicap is pretty inspiring….

Jindod Says, in 6-25-2012 at 00:50:17 from    

Really appalled at some of the comments on here.

Well done, it’s not a fight, it’s a game, that’s why they are ‘players’,
Who’s to say who can and can’t play.

lambadaking Says, in 7-6-2012 at 17:31:00 from    

that was totally inspirational. dankarelli, you were spot on.
