Synopsis: Some admirers have called Gene LeBell, a.k.a. "The Toughest Man Alive," the deadliest man on the planet. His wife says Sarcastically, "He's just from another world." LeBell wears many hats, having grown up in boxing and wrestling gyms around the world and spending a lifetime studying many of the different martial arts. LeBell has won national judo championships, wrestled professionally for over 20 successful years, announced professional wrestling on television for 15 years, and refereed professional boxing and wrestling matches all over the world. The Godfather of Grappling tells the amazing story of this grappling master, who has also been a TV and movie actor and a top Hollywood stuntman for more than half a century. Featuring forewords by "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Chuck Norris, just two of the many celebrities he counts as friends, and packed with dozens of photos and illustrations, The Godfather of Grappling is an inspirational tale sure to entertain fans of professional wrestling, the martial arts, movies, television, and just about anything else Gene LeBell has taken on during his storied career.

About the Author: Gene LeBell has spent time as a judo champion, unlimited fighter, professional wrestler, teacher, author, television announcer/commentator, actor, stuntman, and motorcycle expert. He enjoys grappling and teaching grappling in the hopes that it might help students to a smoother road in life. He partners with Gokor Chivichyan, "the best student he has ever trained," in a grappling and judo school. LeBell is still working in motion pictures and TV to this day, and has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows through the years.
