Undefeated professional MMA fighter Nick Newell goes over how to tie your shoes one handed with special guest Dakota.
Nick’s boyhood hero was Jim Abbott, the professional baseball pitcher with one hand. Nick met Abbott when he was a little boy and remembered what that meant to him.
In a recent video, Newell teaches a young boy with one arm how to tie his shoes.
“I was the only kid I knew that had one hand,” said Nick. “I didn’t know anyone else. I was just kind of thrown out there and told to go out there and just be a boy and go get dirty like everybody else. That’s what I did. I’m determined to succeed. I’m not going to let anything stop me from getting to where I want to go.”
“A lot of people ask me what it’s like fighting with one hand. I’m like, what’s it like fighting with two hands? I just don’t know. This is natural and its how I’ve always been and just like anyone else who plays sports. It just so happens that I’m good at one.”
