Steven grew up doing Martial Arts from the young age of four. His first fifteen years on the mat were spent learning the striking art of Kempo.

Immediately falling in love with Jiu-Jitsu he knew that this was the route he needed to head down. Opening his own school was the only pathway he chose to share and obtain knowledge with students and training partners. Originally drawn to Jiu-Jitsu by the 10th Planet system years later would find himself going back full circle to it for inspiration to perceive Jiu-Jitsu on a whole new dimension.

James is currently an instructor of jiu jitsu, and holds the ranking of purple belt. While working a full time job, James still finds time to train 6-7 days a week. During his rigorous training sessions, James works on improving his game and preparing for local competitions. James’ interest in jiu jitsu was sparked upon watching a UFC fight at a friend’s house in 2012. Almost immediately, he had fallen in love with jiu jitsu and was eager to share his passion with others. James purchased a wrestling mat, partnered up with his uncle, and began drilling moves. After learning all they could from DVD’s and YouTube, James and his uncle decided to join a local school. One year later James traveled to 10th Planet in Bethlehem, PA to attend a seminar, which was taught by Eddie Bravo. Inspired by the philosophy of the 10th Planet system and the passion of its practitioners, James vowed to bring the teachings and mindset of the 10th Planet system to Long Island, NY. When off the mat, James enjoys spending time with his fiancee and two dogs.
