Grappling with Disabilities

Posted Jun 18 2009 12:11am
A story came up at class on Sunday in passing about a guy who was competing without arms and legs. Turns out that he's competing at a high level. His name is Kyle Maynard and while he has difficulty submitting, positionally, he's pretty darned good.

I admire his tenacity. Recently, Kyle Maynard applied to fight in a sanctioned MMA event and his application was denied.

My question is, what do you guys think? Should Kyle be allowed to compete in MMA? Below is a YouTube clip of Kyle at NAGA, another story from Bryant Gumble's show on HBO, and you can easily find lots of information on his story from Google.
