00:01

hey this is russell welcome back to the

00:02

channel right now we are in jacksonville

00:04

florida and we just finished a three-day

00:07

wrestling tournament day one with beach

00:08

wrestling day two was greco and day

00:10

three was freestyle

00:12

trip was fun because a lot of friends

00:14

came with me one was lex he’s been my

00:15

training partner the only other person

00:17

crazy enough in my world to train and

00:19

then actually come to these tournaments

00:20

which has been really fun and number two

00:22

is george ivanov and george was wrestled

00:23

at boise state and after the wrestling

00:25

boise stayed with us he actually went

00:27

back to bulgaria and competed on the

00:28

bulgarian olympic team and so it’s

00:30

always nice having olympian as a friend

00:31

and also as a coach good job for the

00:33

most part wrestling’s been closed down

00:34

since covent and that’s why when this

00:36

year was opening up i was so excited to

00:37

come fly out florida to do it for a

00:39

couple reasons number one i want to

00:40

wrestle again which was exciting number

00:42

two is this the first year ever they had

00:44

beach wrestling i wanted to participate

00:45

in that and so um all three of them are

00:47

happening back to back to back we’re

00:48

about to do weigh in so skin checks

00:50

first make sure we have any weird stuff

00:51

growing on us and then after that we

00:53

jump on the scale and see if we’re

00:55

underway

00:56

alex is nervous look at him

00:59

doesn’t make way to go to my weight

01:00

class with the bad guys

01:02

the last year we did this we planned

01:04

about a week to get ready for the

01:05

tournament and at the very first

01:06

practice i tore my neck out and so we

01:08

didn’t have any other practices then we

01:09

just showed up and it was really fun but

01:10

really hard this time we planned about

01:12

three weeks earlier we started doing

01:14

practices a couple days a week as an

01:15

older guy it’s hard to like take shots

01:17

and just shoot on people and pull their

01:18

legs and all this stuff

01:20

day number one definitely feel rusty and

01:22

out of shape

01:24

and now all my ribs are bruised slightly

01:26

and some internal bleeding i’m pretty

01:28

sure

01:28

but that’s day one it’s normal

01:31

i think we ended up getting about eight

01:32

practices in over the three weeks

01:34

getting us as prepared as possible uh to

01:36

show up here in jacksonville and wrestle

01:38

with a whole bunch of other guys who are

01:38

crazy enough like us to come out here

01:40

and continue to compete

01:44

so day number one was beach wrestling

01:46

and i remember when we started walking

01:47

down

01:48

to where it was at it was so cool

01:49

because we walked over kind of a little

01:50

berm and looked down also and you saw

01:52

the sand and the ocean and you saw

01:54

people out on the sand like sparring and

01:56

rolling around and it was like oh my

01:57

gosh this is one of the coolest things

01:59

i’ve ever seen

02:07

so i have two types of people the ones

02:08

that you guys know about my funnel

02:10

hackers and number two are my wrestlers

02:12

i forget what my people are like and

02:14

they’re really fun all of them they’re a

02:15

little bit crazy obviously they all got

02:17

ears that are a little different so you

02:19

can tell who they are i forgot about

02:21

half of the population all had mullets

02:23

which is which is really encouraging for

02:25

those you know

02:27

who want to grow molds like it’s a thing

02:28

and it’s still happening in the

02:29

wrestling community which i’m pumped

02:30

about

02:32

usually wrestlers get a little nervous

02:33

before their first match it takes the

02:35

first match to dust the rust off of them

02:37

a little bit but they should be fun

02:41

so my first match i just remember it

02:43

going so fast

02:52

then i don’t know five seconds i was

02:54

face down it’s in the sand i get up and

02:56

i can’t see anything i get my face off

02:59

and he got one point for that it’s the

03:01

first person of three wins so i walk

03:02

back out i can’t see anything

03:08

and i know there’s an out of bounds if

03:09

he pushes me out of bounds he gets a

03:10

point so i tried to like grab real quick

03:12

and try to throw him but um

03:14

planting your feet and sand is not like

03:16

planting your feet on the mat i kind of

03:17

slipped and fell down and you got three

03:19

points for that and you ended up winning

03:20

the match so that was my first match uh

03:22

kind of a bummer i blinked i didn’t know

03:23

what happened i don’t think it started

03:25

yet it was already over

03:28

[Music]

03:34

second match i actually drew a guy who

03:35

was a world team member he went

03:37

undefeated olympic trials like a legit

03:39

wrestler um also the way they put the

03:40

weight programs together uh he was about

03:42

35 pounds heavier than me so i saw the

03:44

guy walk out and i was like

03:46

oh my gosh this guy’s huge

03:49

so we started wrestling and luckily this

03:51

is his first time stand wrestling as

03:52

well we start beating on each other’s

03:53

heads a little bit

03:54

and then he tried to do a throw on me

03:56

which i was able to catch so he got a

03:57

slip and i got a point

04:01

then we came back out again and we

04:03

started fighting and he stepped kind of

04:04

on the side back in college i see things

04:06

called the foot sweeping so i kind of i

04:07

tried to foot sweep him and he chopped

04:09

down he didn’t go all the way down but

04:10

kind of stumbled a little bit he starts

04:11

bringing this pressure back up so i came

04:13

back my footstep in the other way and he

04:14

fell to his hip into his back and i got

04:16

three points for that which ended the

04:17

match

04:18

making me

04:20

a beach wrestling champion

04:24

well i didn’t take first but

04:27

it was so much fun i want to start

04:29

drawing sandpits everywhere i go if i

04:31

can find wrestlers to wrestle with me

04:32

volleyball pits beaches you name it i

04:34

want to do it it was it was really

04:36

really fun and probably one of the

04:38

coolest parts of this whole trip because

04:39

it’s just something new to do with the

04:41

skills that we’ve had for the past

04:44

[Music]

04:56

so day two and three we went uh we came

04:58

left to the beach came back to the

05:00

convention center and the first day it

05:02

was greco and which is basically

05:03

wrestling but it’s all upper body you

05:04

can’t touch their legs or you lose

05:06

points and then the second day was

05:07

freestyle and both greco freestyle were

05:09

wrestling olympics they’re different but

05:10

they’re very similar a lot of fun with

05:12

that said you guys want to see a couple

05:13

of the

05:14

not so good moments in the tournament

05:15

[Music]

05:21

ouch

05:22

i shouldn’t let them show them but you

05:24

wanna see the good ones okay watch these

05:25

these are the ones that are important

05:29

[Music]

05:34

good job

05:36

good job

05:38

[Music]

05:42

i was able to take second place in the

05:43

country in both greco and freestyle and

05:45

we had a bunch of matches the one some

05:47

blossom uh but overall had a really good

05:49

experience as well getting back to my

05:50

roots wrestling freestyle and greco

05:52

mine’s about the fourth the size of his

05:54

but second place which second place

05:55

totally is the first loser but i still

05:57

feel good about myself so

05:59

kind of you know we can we can borrow

06:00

one of the big ones for the picture

06:02

take a picture of both big ones

06:04

this is the national championship for

06:06

freestyling 78 kilos the first time i’ve

06:09

ever been able to say that

06:11

but i guess it’s not where you start

06:12

it’s where you finish right

06:15

mostly it was fun just to get back on

06:16

the mat roll around like just

06:19

like reliving the glory days was uh was

06:21

really special and really fun but one

06:22

thing that was really cool there’s one

06:23

highlight that came out of the

06:24

tournament this time that i wasn’t

06:25

expecting wasn’t planning on there’s

06:27

this older man that came out probably in

06:28

his 80s and he was on crutches and we

06:30

thought he was just a spectator and then

06:32

all of a sudden they called his name

06:34

they put the crutches down he walked out

06:35

and he wrestled in the sand and then we

06:37

saw the next name greco walking around

06:39

in his crutches and he took him off he

06:40

started wrestling again and i remember

06:42

looking and took a picture of him and i

06:44

said to my wife and i said this is my

06:45

future just you know like this is going

06:47

to be me when i’m this guy’s age like it

06:48

was just really inspiring to see that

06:50

initially and what i didn’t know is um

06:53

the last day during freestyle it’s

06:55

customary in wrestling when you finish

06:57

famous olympians and things like that

06:58

when they wrestle their last match

07:00

they’ll take the wrestling shoes off and

07:01

put them on the side the mat as a sign

07:03

that they are retiring after he finished

07:04

his last match in freestyle we sat there

07:06

and it kind of got quiet in the stadium

07:08

and the announcer got announced and told

07:10

his story as he was untying his shoes

07:12

and they told the story he started

07:13

wrestling seven years ago and i asked

07:15

him afterwards i said i said you know

07:16

wrestle as a when you’re younger he’s

07:18

like no i’m like why’d you start seven

07:19

years ago he’s like he was a bucket

07:20

listed he was like when you’re my age a

07:22

bucket list would become really

07:22

important to you and i asked him i said

07:25

you know was it emotional when you took

07:26

your shoes off he said yeah and then i

07:28

asked him i was like you know what’s

07:29

what’s that feel like he said you know

07:30

what he’s like i’m a judge and he’s like

07:32

you know typically

07:33

any anywhere else i go people are always

07:35

asking me all these questions about my

07:37

political beliefs and things like that

07:38

he’s like when i started wrestling i

07:39

came here he was like the very first

07:39

time was like no one asked me which side

07:41

i was on nobody cared about my law

07:43

rulings or anything so they came here

07:44

together as wrestlers and because of

07:45

that we wrestled together it was like it

07:47

was just a place for me to escape it was

07:49

my vacation it was my place to be myself

07:51

and it was really powerful as i was

07:53

thinking about that you know i feel like

07:54

there’s not a lot of places for people

07:55

to go to be able to have

07:57

just their family to have their people i

07:59

started thinking about my group of

08:00

people my funnel hackers people who

08:02

follow us and are part of our community

08:04

thing that combines us together as

08:06

funnel hackers is our common goal to be

08:08

able to serve a group of people and do

08:09

it at the highest level possible and so

08:11

that was really the the thing that i got

08:13

from from watching him and seeing his

08:15

experience

08:16

inside the wrestling community something

08:18

that you know he didn’t even know about

08:20

until you know seven years ago and now

08:22

it’s like his happiest memory i hope

08:23

that can be the same thing for people

08:24

here inside the clickfunnels community

08:26

as well

08:29

all right with that said wrap up this

08:30

video and again as you can probably tell

08:32

i’m going to continue to wrestle time at

08:34

least that guy’s age that is the game

08:36

plan and so for any of you guys who want

08:37
