Win or Learn : MMA, Conor McGregor and Me: A Trainer's Journey Paperback

Description

Growing up in Dublin, John Kavanagh was a skinny kid who was frequently bullied.

After suffering a bad beating when he intervened to help a woman who was being attacked, he decided he had to learn to defend himself.

Before long, he was training fighters in a tiny shed, and promoting the earliest mixed-martial arts events in Ireland. And then, a cocky young lad called Conor McGregor walked into his gym ...In Win or Learn, John Kavanagh tells his own remarkable life story - which is at the heart of the story of the extraordinary explosion of MMA in Ireland and globally.

Kavanagh has become a guru to young men and women seeking to master the arts of combat. And as the trainer of the world's most charismatic male MMA star, he has become a magnet for talented fighters from all over the world.

Kavanagh's portrait of Conor McGregor - who he has seen in his lowest moments, as well as in his greatest triumphs - is a revelation.

What emerges from Win or Learn is a remarkable portrait of ambition, discipline, and persistence in the face of years and years of disappointment.

It is a must read for every MMA fan - but also for anyone who wants to understand how to follow a dream and realize a vision.
