Indomitable - Owen Livesey - Ep14 - overcoming adversity,Judo, MMA, lifestyle, s&c, coaching,fighting, olympic trials
In this episode, I catch up with commonwealth judo champion turned professional MMA fighter and old teammate from saints academy Owen Livesey.
Owen played rugby and also trained and competed as a judoka until the last couple of years where the path of life dealt him some hands and he found himself in hull and coaching and teaching judo and wrestling to rugby players the sport that initially disregarded his pursuits of both rugby and judo all them years ago. Life has a funny way of coming around full circle many times over and his story is great to listen to as he like many sportsmen and women have been so close on many occasions but has never given up and is now in a great position training full time to pursue the dream of being an MMA fighter and not just a fighter! he wants to push this opportunity to its limit and i believe he has what it takes.
This conversation covers everything from judo camps to Olympic dreams, setbacks to dark times and the light at the end of the tunnel.
