TWO WORDS TO SHUT DOWN YOUR EXCUSE MAKING: HELVECIO PENNA


That doesn't really make a lot of sense.

Here's the thing about Helvecio Penna.  Yeah, he's 52 and, yeah, he kicks people's asses.  And, we love to make a big deal out of that.  But, when it all comes down to it, he's just another grappler putting in the work and getting the results he seeks.  It's unique to see a guy his age training and competing at the pace and level he does.  But, I get the sense, if asked about it, he would not find that so unique or special.  The bottom line - effort and the results thereof don't care how old you are or what kinds limitations you start out with.  Helvecio is a perfect and shining of example of what the body and mind are capable of when maximum effort is fully employed.  If there ever was a time for it, "Oss."

Now, watch Jits Mag's very kickass documentary on Prof. Penna.
