After watching UFC 2 life for me would never be the same. I instantly fell in love with the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu after watching this tall skinny guy dispatch all comers regardless of size or experience. I started training shortly after in April of 1998. It is more than just a hobby to me, it is a lifestyle.
I have competed and medaled both locally and nationally at the Pan Am Games and Worlds in both Gi and No-Gi competitions. My Jiu Jitsu has also been successfully tested inside the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) arena. The competition has made me a better practitioner, instructor and person.
I have trained under Mike Martin for over ten years experiencing all those great moments with him in my corner. With that being said, nothing brings me more joy than seeing a student try something I taught in class and have success with it.
