Our Mission

While coaching and managing the amateur and professional fighters at BJMUTA, Brian returned to competition in the sport of grappling. He was awarded his BJJ Black Belt in 2008. He made the Fila Grappling U.S. world teams in 2008 and 2009. He is a 4 time world medalist, placing at the world championships in both gi and nogi divisions both years and winning the world championship gold in 2009 in the gi division. He has trained and cornered UFC and TUF veterans, Karo Parisyan, Jeremy Jackson, Lodune Sincaid, Joseph Henle, and Vinc Pichel.
