I am the head instructor at Arashi-Do Martial Arts St. Albert location and teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai and MMA/Submission Wrestling for adults and kids.
I started my martial arts journey at 15 beginning with Ketto Ryu Combat Ju-Jitsu and Kyokushin Karate for four years before coming to Arashi-Do and training in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Professor Mike Yackulic. I received a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Master Sylvio Behring in October of 2013 and I specialize in simple, effective self-defense.
Outside the dojo, I also work as a strength and conditioning coach, teaching seminars for athletic development across Canada and Asia. My background in fitness always makes for fun and interesting warm-ups!
I also love spending time with my wife and co-owner Stephanie, our son Theo and our cats – Batman, D’Artagnan and Jax.
