Andy started training in martial arts  in Daigokan Judo Club, at the age of 6.  With 15 years of Judo experience, he then joined the Irish army and Judo Team, competing in the Military Games in Croatia and travelling across the globe.

His passion for martial arts  developed into coaching MMA during Ireland's Golden Era with his involvement in  shows such as: Cage of Truth, Ring of Truth & Battlezone Fighting Championships

Now, Andy has successfully became a true pioneer  in Irish MMA / BJJ  with medalists in IMAF, Grappling Industries, NAGA and multiple National & International Competitions on his team.

Earning over 40 years in the game , Andy has achieved the titles as a UFC, Cage Warriors & Team Ireland Coach to name a few!
