At the age of three, he started in CMA’s Tiny Tigers program. This program focuses on building life skills for preschool age kids 3-5. We focus on building character qualities such as confidence, attitude, and respect. In time, he was introduced to competitive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the age of 5, and this is when he started his competition journey. Currently, he is training 8 to 12 hours a week while maintaining honor roll status in school. His training has given him the confidence to speak in front of an audience and take on leadership roles. Like his father, he enjoys teaching others the beautiful art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
