2. What motivated you to start providing Jiu Jitsu classes to kids?

Being a parent who never wanted to worry about the health and wellbeing for my children introduced my family to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

As I became a practitioner I realized what Jiu Jitsu offered beyond self-defense, a hard work ethic, confidence, respect, discipline and the ability to survive difficult situations.

I feel that the world would be a better place if everyone experienced what Jiu Jitsu offers.

If I can inspire others to better themselves through Jiu Jitsu, then it is my responsibility to help the next generations to reach their potential.
