I have a special perspective on BJJ formed by combining my 26 years of Law Enforcement experience and 26 years of training, competing and coaching in BJJ. I’m committed to providing my athletes at Extreme with the best opportunities to develop their BJJ skills and confidence.
Having spent the last 15 years competing and training in martial arts, I feel the greatest satisfaction from seeing my students develop and achieve success for themselves.
Martial arts is about growth. Physically and spiritually. Helping people to better themselves through this art form helped my life and got me where I am today. I’m continuing that tradition.
Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in history. I want to pass on it’s traditions and help it reach the recognition it deserves. It taught me the importance of respect, discipline and hard work, and I make sure my students learn in the same way.
Coaching to me, is one of the most wonderful things in life – to teach people to achieve excellence in their martial arts, to improve their character and quality of life.
Fighting and training have played huge roles in my life. It’s rewarding to be able to share those experiences by helping our fight team grow. As a trainer, I really enjoy pushing my students and helping them reach their personal best.
I love teaching Yoga and Stretch classes as I can educate members about their bodies, empowering them to strengthen, work through injuries, and heal themselves.
It’s a humbling honour to share the skills and experience that I have learnt over the years. I endeavour to help make the change that people look for when they step into my classes.
My mission is to empower individuals to a level where everyone is willing to give their best – where equality is measured in effort and heart, not just experience and strength.
MMA has changed my life. I’m always learning and developing every day. I believe hard work pays off and repetition is the key to success. I always look forward to assisting in classes and making sure students are always improving and excelling. My main focus is teaching the kids classes as they are the future of MMA.
The thing I love most about Extreme MMA is that I get to interact with many great human beings on a regular basis – this place is like a magnet for people who are kind, humble and respectful toward others. I can say without a doubt that the friendships and comradery I’ve cultivated here will last a lifetime.
The thing I enjoy most about coaching is seeing the growth of students, not just physically, through getting into better shape and learning a skill like a martial art, but to see people grow as individuals who exude a new confidence in their abilities and approach new and difficult situations in a clear, problem solving frame of mind.
I have found my passion in MMA and I really enjoy helping others better themselves and achieve their goals. It’s really rewarding seeing the progress that all the students make.
I believe that training is essential not only for creating good physical health, but also for strengthening the mind determination, confidence and commitment. I’m passionate about training as a means to personal growth and healing.
