Zack Caffery-Kerr – MMA Writer/Alpha in Training
If you had to describe Zack Caffery-Kerr upon meeting him you would most likely say that it was an experience, a positive or negative one is up to the interaction. A purple belt in jiu-jitsu under Josephine Masiello, a kickboxing instructor, MMA zealot, alpha in training and an all-round renaissance man. A Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (AKA Martial Arts Nerd) fan as a kid he began his journey with karate but has found his real passion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. When Zack walks into the gym, he greets everybody with a smile and quick banter, and you can hear whispers in the background like ” Is that King Gordon Ryan” or more then likely ” the spastics here”. If you watch Zack box you would wonder how he is a vegan with the amount of leather he eats, Zack’s here for a good time and hopefully a long time and only five years into his journey he already feels that BJJ is a journey he will explore for a lifetime travelling at home or abroad meeting the different characters that build the Jiu-Jitsu community we all love. So if your ever in south Perth come down to Gemina and let’s slap, bump and let the good times roll.
