Great Documentary on Helvecio Penna, a De La Riva Blackbelt

A really well done documentary from JITS Magazine about Helvecio Penna.  While I’ve never heard about him before, after seeing this, he’s someone that I’ll never forget.

A 50+ year old black belt under De La Riva who still competes and was able to give a world champ like Xande Ribeiro a run for his money which while amazing still pales in comparison to everything else he does for the community in Rio.  He’s a true inspiration.

Just goes to show, you’re only as old as you let yourself think you are.  I hope I’ll be doing what he does when I’m that age.
