Quickly being promoted to blue belt in 3 months. 8 years later and currently a purple belt under the Tutelage of Sensei Eddie Bravo, he is continuing to pursue his career and his understanding of the art day in and day out. He loves working with kids and enjoys to see their development as they mature and become positive influences in society. Teaching the adult program gives him the opportunity to express his love for the art and to grow with the students as they further their knowledge in self defense and competition Jiu Jitsu.
