Brazillian Jiu Jitsu has exploded in popularity over the last few years and this week we sat down with one of the world’s best competitors.
Darragh O’Conaill is Ireland’s youngest black belt in BJJ and one of the most decorated practitioners of martial arts on the island. We spoke to Darragh about his start in BJJ, how the sport as developed and how he has grown with it. From starting out twice a week in Dublin, to training full time and running his own academy, East Coast Jiu Jitsu.
Darragh spoke to us about competing at the World Championships, European Championships and coaching the new wave of Irish hopefuls ready to take to the mats around the globe.
All of this and we hear about Lindsey’s prep for her MMA debut, Ireland are going to the Euros and the lads talk a bit of UFC 193.
