Charlie Cooper has always been one of my favorite people. The grandson of John Cooper, creator of the iconic Mini-Cooper, Charlie has every reason to be arrogant and entitled, and yet he couldn’t be further from either of those things.
Hard-working, kind and genuine, Charlie is the epitome of what a true jiu jitsu player should represent.
Having suffered two career-ending knee injuries, in both professional rugby and amateur jiu jitsu, he still manages to stay involved in the sporting community and keeps pushing his personal boundaries every day.
Check out the fantastic documentary on Charlie’s entry into motorsport.
