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 learned, trained, competed, and taught for over 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 accomplishments include:

  • Judo Black Belt

  • Shingitai Jujitsu Black Belt

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt

I'm also a JKD Unlimited Instructor and

have earned the following certifications:

  • MMA For the Street Instructor

  • BJJ For the Street Instructor

  • Knife Defense Instructor

  • Muay Thai Instructor

  • Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Instructor

My personal mantra is "Enjoy the Journey"
