I started training Bjj in 2011, with a friend in Atlanta, GA. I was training Muay Thai and a simple suggestion to “stick around and try a bjj class” was all it took to get me hooked on the gentle art!

It's hard to say what my favorite part of jiu jitsu is, because there are so many things, but one of my favorites is that you don’t have to speak the same language to share the mats in Jiu Jitsu. I’ve been able to travel abroad and still share this passion of mine and it blows me away every time I travel outside the county and train!

My biggest accomplishment would have to be opening up an academy with my coach Brandon Magaña in San Diego. I know it is a dream many dream but to see it come to life is a whole other level of proud!

Fun fact: I can beat most people in a 100M dash handstand race! 🤸🏿‍♂️
