Throughout my over twenty year career in martial arts I've trained multiple Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Grappling tournament champions at all experience levels and weight classes. I believe in refining my clients' games and introducing technique, training, diet, conditioning and strategy to promote rapid growth. 

I am a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt under former UFC Welterweight champion and ADCC champion Matt Serra. I have also trained and learned with Joe Scarola, Pablo Popovitch and Marcelo Garcia. It is very important to me to remain a student of ground-fighting in all its forms for the rest of my life and stay on the cutting edge of the art. 

I have pioneered an innovative grappling instructional program that allows untrained beginners to succeed in tournaments with a minimal amount of preparation and advanced competitors to turn the corner to find their path to victory. 

I regularly refine and implement my method as grappling coach in residence at Red Dragon Jiu-Jitsu in Centereach, NY.
