Interesting Fact : In his early 40s, David tipped the scales at 250 lbs. He changed his diet and took up Jiu-Jitsu for exercise. He lost 90 lbs over 18 months and began competing in regional Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. 6 years and 3 surgeries later, he decided he needed a kinder, gentler form of exercise and gave it up (this probably explains why no one tests his patience when arguing with him).
