Regrann from @victorcuione - Behind the scenes: Renzo Gracie is an unreasonable man
Imagine all the comments experienced businessmen gave when Renzo decided to open a BJJ Academy in the middle of NYC years ago. He was told to “be reasonable”. NYC is too expensive, who would train, blah blah. Consider how many people said “Be reasonable Renzo, you’re 51 years old. You shouldn’t compete in ONE.” . Understand that Renzo is so unshakably, unrelenting in his self confidence and strategy that he did NOT have his hands wrapped for his match in Manila because he KNEW he would not need to throw a single punch in order to win. . A reasonable man would say “at least wrap your hands just in case you want to throw a punch.” . Unreasonable people dare us to follow their lead. Unreasonable men inspire us to do more than we can reasonably imagine. Unreasonable people change the world. #. Thank goodness Renzo is unreasonable.
