Founder & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Instructor
BJJ Brown Belt.
With 20+ years of martial arts experience, coach Gabriel started training martial arts at 11 years old. Competing in every martial art he ever could with national titles in Stick Fighting and countless first place medals and trophies, when he was introduced to Kickboxing and later Muay Thai, he could not resist the challenge. However, it was only after being submitted by a 14 year old, 120lbs girl, 5 times in a 5 minute round that he fell in love with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Jiu Jitsu has been his passion ever since, competing as often as possible while dedicating his life to spreading the knowledge to all who enter the dojo.
“The martial arts lifestyle, while an arduous one, has been more fruitful to me than any other venture I have taken on in life. It has given me the path I walk on and the virtues and life lessons that I can now pass on to my students. For that privilege alone, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.” -Gabriel Marte
