Josh is a lifelong grappler that transitioned into world of mixed martial arts four years ago. Josh spent many years honing his skills at one of Chicagoland’s most accomplished MMA training facilities. While at that facility Josh was introduced to the 10th Planet System and discovered the benefits of the system for mixed martial arts and jiu jitsu competition. After a few injuries, Josh reinvigorated his lifelong passion for coaching and decided to open a training facility with longtime friend, and training partner Dr. Angel Santiago. With a massive amount of experience and knowledge the two had attended they set forward to create an ultra-positive training facility in the Northshore area of the Chicago Suburbs.
