In a recent mini documentary by Jeff Sainlar he focuses on perseverance and a never quit attitude. When life dealt Michael Coe a bad hand, he was not going to let that be his defining moment. After being in a serious motorcycle accident, Coe was fighting to survive in a coma and living on life support for a month. The damage from the wreck caused Coe to lose his right arm. “I chose to persevere because I didn’t really have another other choice,” said Coe. “If it’s something I want to do, I’m not going to not do it because of the handicap.”
The former amateur boxer credits his love for boxing and fitness training as his salvation. “It be easy to wallow in self-pity after the accident,” said Coe.
Coe is currently involved in Muay Thai, boxing, fitness and jiu jitsu classes at Tiger Muay Thai.
“I have no illusions or aspirations of being the best in the world,” said Coe. “I just want to be the best I can be.”
