Danny Dowling is an unusual guest because he no longer does martial arts. However, he did pursue his journey from childhood to his older years. That journey saw him reach the highest levels of competition and eventually become part of the GB Taekwondo squad. Danny talks about the reality of being a GB competitor who must keep performing to retain his funding. It’s very tough at the top, and Danny outlines precisely how tough it is. Although he no longer does martial arts, he puts that time and passion into pushing weights and becoming a great sparky.
I hope that Danny will one day restart his martial journey, as I believe he has so much to offer to the combative community.
I'm sure that Danny and I will talk again in the future.
I hope you enjoy our chat.
