Hey guys, I’m coach Luis! I’m a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt under Rob Kahn and Matt Arroyo, and I’m the Head instructor/ Co-Owner of GAB. I started Jiu Jitsu in 2007 at the age of 16 to help stay out of trouble. After falling in love with the art, I started to travel around the country to compete in prestigious tournaments like; International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) World Championship, IBJJF New York Open, Abu Dhabi Professional Jiu Jitsu Trials, and more. After being a well-rounded competitor, I discovered a newfound love for teaching Jiu Jitsu; which led to the opening of Gracie Apollo Beach (GAB) in February 2018. My goal is to connect with every student that walks into GAB, ensure everyone feels at home, and everyone is learning valued self-defense.
