Live on Form Podcast S1 Ep 43 | Ffion Davies
Ffion Davies is a Welsh grappler and Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) black belt, who is widely regarded as one of the top featherweight competitors of her generation. With titles such as Black belt IBJJF No-Gi World Champion (2018), IBJFF Pan-American Champion (2019), IBJJF European Champion (2019), Polaris Lightweight Champion, and ADCC European Trials Champion, she is truly a phenomenon within the grappling scene. Attracted to the physicality of contact sport from a young age, Ffion found combat via Judo at a young age, then lost the love, was turned away from local boxing gyms, only to find the love rekindled via BJJ. The rest, as they say, is history. Ffion joins us to discuss the past, the present and what the future may hold for this young, talented star.
