WOO WOO WOO! I have been talking about this for a few months but it is finally happening! Long story short, I was born with cerebral palsy and am a former JUCO wrestler, and have been missing the competition for a long time. This past fall I was stuck in Texas for a month after flying home to buy a car and got a raw deal, and also a MRSA staph infection. I lost most of my savings before finally getting back to Ohio. I had to find a job, but before that had an epiphany brought on by UFC 139. After seeing the greatest fight of all time, I realized that despite my disability I cannot let myself be one of those middle aged men 30 years from now with the whole woulda, shoulda, coulda routine. I had to fight. I got a job as a Student Staff Supervisor, as well as got back into grad school at my University, and finally have the money to start training! I called Fight Club Pittsburgh today, after checking them out in person a month ago, and am going on the 2nd of February for a one on one interview with a trainer to see where my skills are. They have a Renzo Gracie BB that teaches Jiu Jitsu as well so I am hoping in addition to fight-oriented grappling to get involved with BJJ, as everything I have heard says that more than any other martial art BJJ can turn disadvantages into advantages. I am so amped up for this you all have no idea! I am so glad that this is finally happening, and this journey will be a blast!
