Hi, I’m coach Jon! I’m the Intro Striking coach for both the adult and kids classes. I’m a Jiu Jitsu purple belt and Professional MMA fighter out of Gracie Tampa South.
I started my martial arts journey with wrestling in High school (Greco-Roman and folkstyle oriented). What drew me into Jiu Jitsu after High school was the drive to get back to wrestling and grappling and pursue an MMA career under a Gracie team.
What I love about teaching at GAB is I get to teach a fun easy-going class while watching everyone evolve their technique. Stop by and try a striking class today!
