John Kavanagh is Ireland's first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, Ireland's first MMA fighter in the cage and Ireland's first Coach of a UFC Champion.
Having trained as a mechanical engineer he decided to leave the engineering world behind him and pursue his passion for mixed martial arts.
John runs SBG Ireland, Ireland's first full time Martial Arts facility. It is home to UFC's Conor McGregor and a plethora of MMA superstars. Conor McGregor began training at SBG in 2008 under John. The journey John has been on has been incredible, and he'll be here on boards.ie from the 27th - 29th June to answer your questions about it. He's been spotted around the MMA forum from time to time so he's well used to boards (and boardsies)!
We're opening up the AMA a day early so there will be some questions ready when he logs in tomorrow Thanks John!
As with all AMAs, you can ask anything but John is not under any obligation to answer everything. If your question or a similar question has already been asked and answered, he may not have time to answer yours too. Enjoy!
