MEET THE TEAM
As a first-time teacher of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu,
I've been training in this martial art now for almost 8 years consistently. Through my progression from white to brown belt, I've been privleged to train under some of the worlds best instructors. In competition, I have managed to achieve some good results, including a gold and silver medal at the IBJJF Worlds Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championship. I like to think that's a direct reflection of the quality of instructors and training partners I had throughout the years.
I was introduced to Brazillian Jiu Jitsu through a live demonstration by the late Master Carlson Gracie Sr. He had an assistant named Rey Diogo. These two gentlemen changed my mind on martial arts, right after I witnessed in action the power and finesse of Gracie Jiu jItsu.
I had the honor and privilege of training under Master Carlson Gracie Sr. until I graduated from my college program. I was fortunate to receive my Blue Belt from Master Carlson Gracie.
