I’m a purple belt here at Gracie Apollo Beach. I’m an instructor for the adult intro program! I began training in February 2017 at 6 Levels in Winter Garden Florida.
As a disabled Veteran, I have physical limitations that keep me from doing “traditional” exercises. A friend brought me to class one night and I was able to do everything the Professor showed, albeit not very well!
I got a great workout, learned some Gracie Jiu Jitsu self-defense, and haven’t looked back since!
We moved back to Apollo Beach and I started training at GAB in 2018. I received my Purple Belt in December 2019, and I started teaching Intro Gracie Jiu Jitsu classes in January 2021.
I take great pride in teaching new students, and experienced ones, the fundamentals of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I believe everyone should know basic, fundamental self-defense, and I am proud to be teaching it as part of the GAB coaching staff! Hope to see you on our mats!
