Tim Kennedy is a BJJ black belt and UFC veteran, as well as a Green Beret and Special Forces Ranger.
And he appears to have a colorful skillset in all sorts of things!
John Danaher stands witness to that, as Tim is one of his friends.
Here’s what he had to say about Kennedy in a social media post:
This crazy job of mine has brought me into contact with many truly fascinating people.
One who really stands out will always be Tim Kennedy.
It is very difficult in this life of ours to master even one skill – Tim Kennedy is a master of many.
I watch him routinely spar against elite current MMA fighters and easily hold his own even in retirement. Then he’ll do a Jiu-Jitsu class and give hell to top grapplers.
Then he will head out to a gun range and easily put five rounds into a ten inch circle at a thousand meters day or night, in any weather conditions, then he will teach handguns, knife defense.
After all this he will quietly slip down to the Texas border and battle cartel human traffickers all night in night vision goggles.
And the truly incredible things is that next day when I come to the gym, he’ll be there before me doing some crazy workout that would flat line me in three minutes and then do another MMA sparring session with no problems!
To Danaher, Tim Kennedy is “a character like no other he’s met”:
He can teach you about driving cars for maximum performance against armed attack, how to survive longer in freezing water, how to speak foreign languages to get by in a dozen countries – and after all this this he’s one of the nicest and most helpful people you’ll ever meet – a man who always makes time to help his friends.
