After rising to the pinnacle of the world of wrestling with NCAA, US Open, World, and Olympic titles, Mark Schultz’s world crashed down around him after his brother Dave – his role model and wrestling partner – was murdered. Mark had to learn how to come back from the brink, overcome this tragedy to achieve success on the mat once again in the Ultimate Fighting Championships.
A Fighter’s Inspiration
As an inspirational speaker and life coach, Mark is unique. He shares hard fought, hard won lessons on how to overcome opponents, barriers, and hardship.
“Don’t let Mark’s intimidating figure scare you. He is one of the most humor filled persons I’ve met. He’ll leave you in stitches while driving home his message of perseverance, pain, hopelessness, loss, regret, sorrow, and triumph in one of the most amazing stories I’ve ever heard. Laced with subtle humor Mark shares his message with two pockets of laughs. He is well worth the price. If you’re looking for a presentation without humor, don’t invite Mark.”
-Bob Bubb, Executive Director National Wrestling Coaches Association
