d'Ercole, Marcel

Marcel d'Ercole '71 writes, "I competed in December 2014 at the Masters World Jiu-Jitsu championship and placed second. It was a totally unexpected outcome for me to place second in any kind of world championship at anything. The real story is that my ankles and knee are gone from playing basketball at Santa Clara and long-distance running before I even took up jiu jitsu. I've learned that not only do you not have to retire from sports activities, it's possible to start from scratch even at an advanced age."
