Product description

The reigning welterweight champion and the world's most popular UFC fighter, Georges Rush St. Pierre seemed untouchable, until injury derailed him and jeopardized his title and his career. Determined to make his comeback, he embarked on a careful regimen of physical therapy. He also used this healing period to assess his life, where he's been, what he's achieved, where he wants to go, and lessons that helped shape who he is. In GSP, the championship fighter invites fans into the circle of his life, sharing his most closely guarded memories. He talks about his childhood and the torture he endured at the hands of older schoolmates, abuse that led him to martial arts and a black belt at age 12. He introduces us to a young GSP hauling garbage as he trained to become a fighter, doggedly suffering through loss until he tasted victory. St. Pierre reflects success, how he stays grounded and composed, and on failure, how he learned humility and ltenacity. He shares his thirst for knowledge and teaching others, and speaks out passionately for bullied youths. Throughout, he makes clear the one simple truth has always guided him: never stop reaching for your goals. An intimate, gritty look at a fighter's journey, told through inspiring biographical vignettes, GSP is a moving account of commitment and power, achievement and pain, dedication and conviction fomr one of the world's greatest champions.

Review quote

"GSP the warrior reveals himself. "The Way of the Fight" is the way of his life. It's about the process of Georges St-Pierre, who came from nowhere to become an international icon.''--Diane Sauv?, Radio-Canada
