New Wave Jiu Jitsu: A New Philosophy Of Positional Escapes by John Danaher

It wasn’t all bells and whistles for John Gaglione in his quest to become successful. In high school he had aspirations of becoming a pro wrestler and as he tried to climb the mountain of wrestling, a lot of obstacles stood in his way. John suffered multiple injuries all throughout high school which hindered his hopes of joining the pro ranks in wrestling. No matter how hard John tried he had always felt like he was failing. John lifted weights, he went to camps and clinics, he even ate extremely well, but nothing he did would result in success.

John knew he had to train smarter not harder, because he realised that it took more than hard work to be successful. John began entering powerlifting events where he won titles in the 17 - 19 year old divisions. John won the New Jersey and New York state opens, he secured a second place at the All Raw World Cup and in 2006 he won a World Championship. During John’s final year of high school he began coaching the youth wrestling team, which started to give him a sense of purpose. After losing his chance to wrestle in the last year of high school, John’s dreams of wrestling professionally came crumbling down. John started researching the correct way to train the body, so he implemented that into his own training.

After graduating from high school, John took on an entry level coaching role at Plainedge high school. Through John’s failures as an athlete, he vowed to help other hopeful athletes achieve their goals. John was coaching for several years and as a result of his new found passion, he let his own health slip out of his grasp. John ballooned out to an unfit and overweight 340 pounds. John decided that he needed to get his health back in shape, so he hired several coaches including; a business, nutrition and a strength coach to help him get his life in order.

John rented his own space and as he put in the hard yards, he lost over 60 pounds. John was starting to feel good again as Gaglione Strength was born. John began competing in powerlifting and kettlebell events again from 2013 and onwards, where he won multiple titles. John has entered many competitions and has taken out first place in events like the USA Nationals, PowerPalooza and Supreme Iron Warrior. John’s most recent event was extremely successful as he finished first and competed in the 90 kilogram division.

John has also furthered his career by publishing his own books on various powerlifting and strength and conditioning, his books were titled “Powerlifting for the People” and “The Powerlifting Handbook” both books have become quite popular. John is also heavily involved with powerlifting seminars, where he showcases his expertise in the correct procedures of lifting weights.
