Yesterday I got to represent BJJ at an event to raise funds for the children’s ward of our local hospital. The program featured 8 different instructors from all different disciplines of the martial arts; from Karate and Kung Fu, Aikido and Thai Kickboxing, plus others.
German Olympic weightlifter Matthias Steiner promised his wife that one day he would win a gold medal in the Olympics. Just a month before the competition, his wife tragically died in a car accident. In order to break the record, he needed to beat his personal record by more than 2o kg. This is the video of his attempt at the gold medal.
I always have to reblog this. This always gets my feels.
