From Lloyd Irvin (yeah, yeah, I know; it’s still good shit, which is why I’m passing this along):
I was paralyzed from a judo throw.
As I laid on the ground and couldn’t move my arms or legs, I started thinking about my family, my life, my son and what it was going to be like to spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair.
This is exactly what I was thinking after I got thrown on my head in a Judo tournament in 2003.
Talk about a scary experience.
After spending the next year off the mats, doctors telling me that life as I knew it would never be the same again. Doctors telling me that I need to have spinal fusion the very next day(don’t forget that this was in 2003).
After this injury the entire martial arts community reached out to me and the support was tremendous.
People from all over the World were sharing their neck injury stories with me, what they did to recover, what different types of procedures they had and all kinds of alternative strategies.
Then I started to realize how many people in the grappling
World get neck injuries. No one shared this with me when
I first started. I then started asking myself questions.
Why don’t people in the grappling/mma World condition their necks more? I know that I didn’t.
Then I met a guy name Jim Kelly whose neck injury was just down right sad!
He BROKE HIS NECK, he had complications for years, the doctors
told him that if his neck wasn’t so strong he would be dead’. You have to see the story that they wrote in the news paper about him.
But now they call it a ‘miracle’ that he’s back to training, competing and plans on doing a mma fight.
Anyway the reason that I’m writing you is because you need to know the truth about the sport you’re involved in.
You need to understand that protecting your spinal cord and it all starts with protecting your neck.
Well Jim has set up a website where he’s giving away information on how to protect your neck. How to use simple exercises to make sure that you don’t end up in a wheelchair.
I sure wish that I knew about this when I first started.
I never knew the importance of building a strong neck until I suffered my injury and was forced to.
Well Jim is on a mission to help as many people learn how to protect their necks, if you grapple, do mma or are involved in any contact sport, you owe it to yourself to see what Jim is teaching.
It won’t cost you a single dime and Jim is really passionate about this topic.
