– I have been training in Japanese martial arts since I was 6 years old. I started with Karate, Kendo and Judo. After collage I started training in Muay Thai. I fought as a amateur in the US and made my pro debut in Singapore.
Evolve MMA opened in Nov 2008 and I joined the instructor team. I began competing in Muay Thai in Pattaya Thailand under the Sityodtong camp. I worked my way up the ladder with knockouts and get a shot at the Threppasit Stadium Championship. I lost my first shot at the title but came back to win the championship in May of 2011.
During my time at Evolve I started training with some of the best BBJ artists on the planet. I received my blue belt in Brazilian Juijitsu from Rafael (Gordinho) De Lima on my 32nd birthday.
