My Indianapolis Jiu Jitsu School
It’s a good feeling to be here in Greenwood, Indiana, in the suburbs of Indianapolis spreading this amazing art known as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! People everywhere are beginning to understand that the benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are far beyond the self-defense techniques that they are learning or the training that gets you in great shape. They also now know that they will gain more confidence, better health, discipline and that their lives will be changed for the better.
I have been involved in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in one way or another since 1997. The combination of mental and physical challenges, the chess game you play with your body is what first hooked me. It was a way to take myself to the edge in every training session and reap amazing rewards as a result. Since I can remember, my goal was to open my own gym and pass this way of life on to others and now it is a reality.
When I started training and was a white belt, I remember the more experienced guys training and doing things I thought was mind-blowing. Anytime I had the chance to go with a purple or brown belt it was just something extraordinary. They seemed not of this world the way they would just flow around and always have complete control of what was going on, like swimming with sharks.
Over the past 14 years I have had great opportunities to train with many of the sports elite and now I’ve reached my final goal of passing what I have learned on to others. Not only demonstrating the self-defense techniques that I learned but creating an environment to learn in, train in, a place where everyone can grow and have fun doing it.
My mission now is to bring out the potential in every student through training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I want to see it have the same effect on everyone as it had on me.
