A LITTLE ABOUT ME…
I’ve been training and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since 2012. As a kid, I grew up watching Chuck Norris, Jackie Chan, Jet Li and any other martial arts films I could get my hands on.
Even though I always wanted to try Karate, my parents were against the idea of their son learning how to fight. It wasn’t until age 21 that I tried my first Jiu-Jitsu class and was instantly hooked. The cerebral side of grappling allowed me to express my creativity and love for fitness.
It wasn’t until 2017 that the game of Jiu-Jitsu really changed for me. While competing at an EBI qualifier in Toronto, I witnessed two of the best submission grapplers today compete against each other in what looked like a dangerous scramble of fluid movement and perfect technique. From that point on, Jiu-Jitsu converted from a hobby to a studious obsession as I deeply dove into the modern concepts, systems and philosophies of John Danaher.
In 2019, I decided to take off the kimono for good and focus specifically on No Gi grappling as I joined a new team at Adrenaline MMA.
Fun Fact: I am probably the worst natural-born competitor in the sport and understand more than anyone what it’s like to completely suck at Jiu-Jitsu! Through hard work and persistent effort I’ve been able to transform failure into mild success, having won several local tournaments and super fights. Don’t let the gold medals fool you – they are just a cover up for the fact that I am terrible at this sport. 😉
The ultimate goal? To make it into ADCC.
