Wow, I was on the wrestling team in HS and it was hard enough with all four limbs attached. Amazing.

Well, he does have a lower center of gravity than just about everyone he'd compete against.. And I'm sure he's in a weight class with similarly weighted opponents..

What happens if he gets piledriven? The classic methodology in catch-as-catch-can wrestling is that control of 2 of the 5 major points of extremity (arms, legs, head) usually puts you in control of your opponent. However, you might have to get in a hairpull or use of the tights in order to achieve a similar result. :shrug: All in all, it's pretty amazing that he competes at the level he does. It's a real victory for our not-really-handicapped brothers and sisters (including the armless). :17:
