Coach Aaron has been practicing BJJ intermittently since 2002.
After many years of wrestling, he was inspired by the practice of BJJ and the opportunity to adapt his unique athletic strengths to his practice. While he began his training unofficially, as he could find training partners, he started training with Calvert MMA and now teaches the Jr. Grapplers classes at Lineage BJJ, where he also coaches his own children. Additionally, he also helps mentor beginner adult students and adults preparing for testing.
Aaron enjoys thinking about BJJ conceptually and then breaking down training to help his students improve as a whole. He particularly enjoys training at Lineage for its welcoming community, its leadership, attention to detail, and cleanliness.
Quote from Aaron:
“I like it when the shy kids get a move, and briefly, they aren’t shy; they’re little monsters ready to whoop the world.”
