What makes me stand out from other instructors/coaches is the attention to details I provide in my instruction. I pride myself on being very patient and detail oriented in techniques that I teach. I make sure every student goes home with a clear understanding of what they've learned and how to apply it on the mats.
I deeply enjoy the fact that I get to do what I love and that's teach Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

How did you get started teaching?
I got started teaching in my early blue belt stage in bjj with kids classes. Then I started getting calls from friends about teaching them to get ready for MMA fights. After that I went and got Certified as a personal trainer and continued my own self training to better my understanding of the art to improve my teaching abilities. People then started to approach me seeking to get better at Jiu-jitsu and I began doing private lessons.
