I’m a Brazilian jiu jitsu brown belt. I have competed in MMA and in many jiu jitsu tournaments. I also hold a second-degree black belt in Tae Kwon do. I teach my own classes in spring hill Florida and train out of new port Richey jiu jitsu academy. I love jiu jitsu and want to spread the family aspect to all and have created my own you tube page, to help spread my knowledge and love of the sport. I have made martial arts my life starting in TKD when I was 12 years old. It is my belief that training makes you a better person and puts the best people around you.
