I hold this sport very dear to me. I don’t just want to be good at it I want to be remembered as someone who contributed to the game, not just through competition but through teaching and helping others pave the road their journey takes place on. I like to concern myself with not only the hows of a technique but the whys and whens . One of the most valuable assets in the world is a good partner and I pride myself in that area. I believe in the school I attend and the system that is taught here.

Staying involved in things has always been a struggle for me. I’ll start in on something and then lose interest in a few months. The day I started Jiu Jitsu under the instruction of Paul Hopkins I was hooked. And although I took a few years off, it drew me back. I believe that I bring a unique quality as someone who was not an athlete when I first started. I can relate to those who are starting from scratch, to those who are in need of something engaging in most parts of life, and to those who are looking to better themselves.
