started his Martial Arts journey at 8 years old and has yet to stop since. Martial Arts is much more than a career for him. Martial Arts saved his life. He owes all his success to the foundation in which Martial Arts has led him to. He has traveled the world, learned multiple languages and sought his passion to helping others all because of his Martial Arts journey. He has Black Belts in 4 different Martial Arts - Shotokan, Ninjutsu, Tae Kwon Do and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In 1993 he won the NBL World Championship in Karate. He is still an active Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitor. He is a multiple-time medalist in the prestigious IBJJF NY Open, IBJJF Boston Open, IBJJF BJJ Pro, and IBJJF Pan Ams. He’s a gold medalist in the Korea BJJ Championships and UAE Continental Pro as well as local tournaments such as BJJ Pride and Big Apple BJJ.
Aside from competing, his biggest motive in Martial Arts is to help others receive the qualities and lessons he learned with his journey; and to ultimately be the best versions of themselves.
