What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I go over a quick bjj experience questionnaire, so we only cover the most important techniques on the lessons. For instance, if a student has never done bjj before, we will go over basic concepts.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 7 years, professionally training/instructing since 2015. I finished my blue belt rank as #1 in the global rank in the year of 2016. Now as a brown belt in BJJ, I've become 3x American National Champion and 5x Chicago Champion and counting!

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

It varies from lesson type (basic, intermediate, advanced). It starts at 100 per class!

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in Chicago under Andre Maneco, instructing kids and beginners, then nogi classes (advanced).

What types of students have you worked with?

I've been working with people that would like to practice jiu-jitsu as a hobby, for self-defense and competitive training.
