ABOUT ADAM

WHO THE HELL ARE YOU AND WHY SHOULD I TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY?

Just some guy who does a lot of martial arts. And don’t take anything I say seriously. Unless you want to, of course. But the point is to think for yourself. If you like some of the things I say about how martial arts can help everyday life, great. If not, that’s OK too.

But, to answer your question, my name is Adam Corcoran. I grew up in Dublin, Ireland. Got a black belt in Judo and competed internationally for Ireland. Went to Trinity College Dublin and lived in Munich Germany for a little bit. Graduated with a masters degree from Maynooth University in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). A couple years later, I wrote a book and launched a podcast about the lasting life lessons we can all learn from great martial artists and how everybody can develop a fighting spirit for life. Ended up shacking up with a Brazilian. Now I live in the Irish countryside with numerous rescue animals, including a Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Alfie and two cats that absolutely despise each other. I train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Coach John Kavanagh and teach beginner and private classes at SBG Ireland HQ.
