Last weekend the Northeastern Brazilian city of Natal was stage to the first leg of the worldwide trials for the Abu Dhabi WPJJC. At the event, 13 Jiu-Jitsu aces secured all-expenses-paid trips to compete in the United Arab Emirates. There were, however, two athletes who were given heartier applause than even the champions.
They showed their demonstration by overcoming their limitations and competing, bringing the stands to their feet. Watch the video below and don’t go grumbling about life. Get out there and do it!
1. LUCIANO FERNANDES (KIMURA/NOVA UNIÃO), CEREBRAL PALSY VICTIM, JIU-JITSU PRACTITIONER OF ONE YEAR
2. Vangleison Martins (CheckMat), born with foot deformity, trains for one year and eight months
