Some people go to church, I go to my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy.
I’ve been training since 10/1/2007 and the journey is just beginning.
I earned my purple belt (12/16/10) under Nate Ryan and Patric Barbieri at MassBJJ in Acton, MA. Upon moving to San Jose in July 2011, I started training at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose (Hillsdale Academy) under Chris Coldiron and Leandro Vieira.

Since I regularly travel both domestically and overseas, I seek out a local academy and train there as I can.
