With 30 years practicing and competing all over the world, I decided that it was my time to set down some roots and build a strong foundation on my own in Austin. I have helped hundreds of schools around the world and their communities to develop a strong bond amongst their families. My goal has been to empower children and adults to reach their potential. Austin is the place I have chosen to bring the Art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and to continue my quest for excellence within the sport.
