My passion for MMA began back in 2002 when my father introduced me to Ken Shamrock while we were at a high school wrestling tournament. At the time I didn’t know what Mixed Martial Arts was so I took a look and ended up becoming a huge fan. During my senior year of high school I focused most of my time to playing football and when the year was over, I was awarded San Diego player of the year along with other awards. I was given the opportunity to play D1 football at Colorado St but decided to join the team at Palomar JC. After my freshman year I was honored to make the JC All American team. After that I felt like my passion was switching to MMA so I joined Professor Michio’s Jiu-Jitsu team and haven’t looked back. I have won multiple Jiu-Jitsu tournaments with my lowest placing being 2nd one time.
Currently, I hold the rank of Black Belt in Jiu Jitsu under Professor Michio Grubbs. I am an active MMA Professional fighter and the Head MMA Coach for Excel Jiu Jitsu MMA & Fitness. I teach MMA and BJJ group classes and I am also available for Private instruction for those in need of one on one training.
The Excel MMA Oceanside classes will challenge you physically & mentally and you will get a great workout. Classes focus on kickboxing, Boxing, wrestling, and Jiu Jitsu with the emphasize on control and positioning.
