Devoted husband, loving father of five children, ER physician, Jiu Jitsu practitioner.
I have been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since March 2017 under Clint Crabtree and Ben Van Doren at Grand Rapids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and my passion for this gentle art continues to grow. I am so excited to have the opportunity to bring Brazilian Jiu Jitsu into our local communities. I initially started training in order to improve my physical fitness to be able to keep up with my children who seemed to possess never-ending energy. In this increasingly busy and stressful world, self improvement has never been more important. It is the progressive positive transformation of mind, body and spirit that makes this art so vital to me and our members. I can not wait to meet you and/or your children on the mats!
