2X ALL AMERICAN ANTHONY ROBLES DOESN'T EVEN SEE THE BARRIERS. GET MOTIVATED, GRAPPLER.

When you watch a video like the one below about NCAA wrestling talent, Anthony Robles, you feel like a complete idiot for all the times you've complained about your physical limitations.  Robles was born with one leg and he's a 2X All American at ASU with his eyes set on a national title.  What's more impressive is that he shows no sign of self pity.  He basically figured out a way to be effective at the highest level in his sport despite what most of us would consider an enormous barrier.

It really puts us all to shame.  I've been guilty of hiding behind my perceived limitations on many occasions over the years.  And I hear it all the time in the gym - grapplers claim they can't do this or that because of some inherent physical limitations (or worse - a minor injury). 

Well, we were all wrong, because we can clearly do anything ... if we want it badly enough. So, go sign up for Pan American and bring home that white belt gold despite your excessive freckling and/or slightly stubby fingers.

Jiu Jitsu.
