Owner / Professor / The Paradigm Academy
A practitioner of the art since 2008. After practicing the art for a few months it became readily apparent that I would be doing this for the rest of my life. After receiving my blue belt I felt that one day I too would embark upon the journey of teaching others Jiu – Jitsu. Sports has never come easy to me but I have found that with enough hard work and dedication ordinary people are capable of extraordinary things. My previous career afforded me the ability to travel the world and learned from some of the best grapplers on this planet. Fast forward a couple of years and now I have a lovely daughter and a beautiful wife that help with the academy! It is our purpose to do for others what has been done for us.
Professor / The Paradigm Academy
After 4 years of collegiate wrestling, I struggled to find something to keep me motivated to exercise and stay active. After 8 years of going to the Gym day in and day out, I was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Without knowing at that time it became a life altering decision. After 9 Years of constant struggles and hurdles to achieve the next level, I received my black belt. I am an avid competitor and as a black belt continue to improve myself and test myself on the mat. It was not an easy journey, but it was a journey well worth it.
