Head Coach & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt
I started Mixed Martial arts and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in around 2006. Formerly competitive in semi professional cage fights and with numerous grappling tournaments since, I understand the dedication and commitment required to become successful in competition as well as how to ensure martial arts are safe, enjoyable, challenging and fun! I received my Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in September 2018, after 12 years of training.
During this time, I was fortunate enough to train with some legends of the sport such as 'Spider' Anderson Silva, Andre Galvao, Lucio 'Lagarto' Rodrigues, Fernando Terre and Henry Akins. I also trained under Braulio Blackbelt Luke Costello. I have practiced alongside UFC fighter Mark Godbeer and have fought against Bradley Scott, also in the UFC.
Now, I am always seeking students who are passionate and eager to improve themselves. If you're willing to learn, I would love to be your coach!
