An Introduction to Jiu-Jitsu

Meet Brian Murphy. Some of you might remember Brian as he was one of our Life With No Limits Champions from 2019. Brian does jiu-jitsu, a Brazilian martial art that involves grappling, wrestling, and using your opponent's weight against them to try and get them to "submit" or "tap-out". Brian has a blue belt in this discipline and it won't be long before he has a black belt.

His training partners call him "the coal face" as it is so much hard work to try and submit him! Brian attends Enable Ireland adult services and lives life with no limits. Thanks to Brian and his instructor, Leo Dorrigo, for letting us film in one of their jiu-jitsu classes.
