About James Mangahas

Position at SASSOM MMA: 
Assistant BJJ Coach

Always a keen basketball player when I was young, my tiny body didn’t allow me to progress to anywhere significant in the field of sport. When I completed my physiotherapy degree in 2005, I decided that I would start something for myself and that was BJJ.


Weirdly enough BJJ and as of late have really started to enjoy Olympic Lifting Other standard passions include trying to eat my weight in delicious food.
