Brad began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Combat Fitness in 2009 when the allure of free shorts and a rash guard to compete it the Northwest Submission Challenge’s Sub Only tournament, finally made him come to a class that wasn’t Muay Thai or boxing. Two, losing-effort, 30-minute matches later, he was hooked for life.
As a competitor, Brad has won and medaled at events like NAGA Utah, The Northwest Submission Challenge, and Utah’s Champion Grappler on his way to earning his Brown Belt from Scott Thometz in 2016.
Outside of the gym, Brad is a Dean’s List Elementary Education Student at Boise State. He loves teaching and looks forward to helping everyone he can in their own BJJ journey.
