Difficulties and challenges in life should be treated as stepping stones – not as stumbling blocks.
That’s definitely one of the things quickly came to mind while I was watching the inspiring video below. This story is about 7-year-old boy Isaiah Bird who doesn’t have legs because of a birth defect.
Still, this determined child didn’t let his physical limitations get in the way of his dreams. With his impressive strength and the guidance of a kind coach, he plays as a wrestler for the team Gladiators.
Miguel Rodriguez, his coach, not only took him into the team and took the time to train him but has formed a great bond with him. In fact, he treats Isaiah as his own son. During wrestling season, Isaiah (who lives at Glen Cove Church with his mom and baby brother) stays with Rodriguez for about 5 to 6 days a week and the coach helps him from getting ready for school to wrestling training.
In his own words, the caring coach said “He’s not going to be 7 for the rest of his life. I think that life is going to get tougher for him and I need to make sure that he’s going to be ready for that.”

Wrestling As A Sport
A combat sport usually played by two competitors, wrestling involves various techniques such as clinch fighting, grappling holds, joint locks, locks, takedowns, and throws. This physical sport is played by men, women, and even children such as in the case of Isaiah.
There are two different categories in terms of discipline namely international and folk wrestling disciplines.
Three international wrestling disciplines are officially approved in the Olympics namely Greco-Roman wrestling, men’s freestyle wrestling, and women’s freestyle wrestling. Other international disciplines
Folk style wrestling, on the other hand, involves oil wrestling, collegiate wrestling, and sambo.
