    Someone posted this recently to FB and I watched it all a few weeks ago.

    Great story (I think) because it showcases the effects of judo on emotional maturity, growth etc. Ashley - and his mentors - certainly seem to be using it to good benefit to counteract some troubling circumstances in his life.

    Also - damn - his judo is *slick*.

    How is he a "bad boy" anyway ? ADHD seems to be an issue, however, I think that may in reality be one of his strengths as a competitor, despite other issues it causes him.

    He is VERY quick and coordinated. Made the other guys in the video at the shiai look like they were standing still at times.
