Northern California can rest easy after Bryant, a young ninja trained by members of Team Alpha Male (TAM) in Sacramento, rescued several of the city’s figureheads from danger.
MMA, a sport designed on an athlete’s selfish pursuit for prizefighting glory, afforded a one-of-a-kind opportunity as a selfless act. When TAM’s head wrestling coach and owner of P2O Hot Pilates & Fitness, thanks to the local Make-A-Wish chapter (link here), heard Bryant’s desire to rid ‘The Capital City’ of evil-doers, he appeared in the five-year-old’s corner as if rubbed from the lamp of a genie.
Mixed martial artists personify the essence of a ninja; therefore, Castillo, a veteran of the sport for over a decade, is well-versed in the training required to deliver a stealth attack. Leading into the once-in-a-lifetime adventure, Bryant’s techniques were sharpened:
From the first bell to start the day until the cage door was unlocked, Bryant’s ninja skills, though they went unnoticed by many, were on full display. Saving the life of the Sacramento King’s mascot, Slamson, protecting an elderly woman at Bank of the West, releasing the Chief of Police from his entrapment, and apprehending the antagonist was all in a day’s work for Bryant, yet it wouldn’t have been possible without the heart-warming compassion of Castillo and his teammates.
