A young wrestler from Long Beach who has no legs is captivating audiences with his moves on the mat.



Isaiah Bird, 6, was born with a defect that left him without legs. His personal battles don't end there: he lives in a shelter at a Glen Cove Church with his mother and 1-year-old brother, and his family can't afford a wheelchair so Isaiah gets around on his hands.

Impressed with Isaiah's strength, coach Miguel Rodriguez suggested he give wrestling a shot.

"Wrestling is a sport where you don't really need legs to be an athlete," says Rodriguez.

Isaiah won so many matches this year that he qualified for the state tournament.
