I’ve been training Brazilian jiu jitsu for over 20 years, beginning in 1995 at the Rickson Gracie Academy in Los Angeles, CA. I also trained at the Beverly Hills Jiu Jitsu Club, then later with Eddie Bravo at the first 10th Planet school located at the Bomb Squad in West Hollywood..


I moved moved to Austin, TX in 2006 and received my black belt in 2009 and am now a 2nd degree black belt under jiu jitsu mastermind Sean Choi 

I’ve been lucky to have many great training partners who were – and are – better than I am at jiu jitsu. This helps me to constantly focus on where I can learn and improve as there is never a day when I’m the best person on the mat.

I look forward to teaching all the things I wish someone had taught me.
