It was truly awesome. I was learning Jiu-Jitsu straight from the source. There is this saying, “Water is always purest closest to the source.” I got to train and learn directly from one of the founders. It is one of those privileges that you only hear about sometimes. Life happens the way life happens, and I happened to be in the right place at the right time. Now, I am honored to be able to pass on my knowledge to you.
I earned my Black Belt from Grandmaster Relson Gracie and am currently a 2nd Degree Black Belt. I specialize in self-defense based Jiu-Jitsu with an emphasis on takedowns and striking. I have taught seminars all over the country, promoted individuals to Black Belts, formed an affiliation of academies across the United States, taught for the United States Army, privately taught security contractors, as well as police, and helped assist in forming a non-profit organization to support disabled veterans through Jiu-Jitsu
I am committed to being a leader and example for our students. I am committed to spreading our Jiu-Jitsu all over the world. And, I am excited to make a difference for you and your families! I am personally inviting you out to come take a class and see what this Martial Art can do for your life! I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
