For over 35 years, I've trained in many styles of martial arts. I'm the owner & lead instructor of AXT Jiu-Jitsu in Yorkville Illinois. There I've trained, competed, and taught for 15 years! Life has gifted me with some incredible instructors, each providing me guidance and mentorship along the way. To them I'm forever grateful.

Some of my accomplishements include:

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt

  • Judo Black Belt

  • Shingitai Jujitsu Black Belt

  • MMA For the Street Instructor

  • Muay Thai Instructor

  • Knife Defense Instructor

  • Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Instructor

My personal mantra is "Enjoy the Journey"
