Ruadhan Mac Fadden Travels the World to Fight Polar Bears and Train Jiu-Jitsu

Ruadhan Mac Fadden is a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and adventurer. Ruadhan travels often to areas all over the world to hike, explore, and train Jiu-Jitsu. I was very excited to talk to Ruadhan about his recent trip to Svalbard in the northernmost regions of the world. 

In this episode, we talk about training Jiu-Jitsu, lessons learned from travelling, and Ruadhan's adventures to some seriously cool places.
