Brandon has always enjoyed competing in sports. He was a three-sport athlete in high school and went on to compete in football and track & field at the collegiate level. When he was done competing there was a void that he needed to fill. He was looking for something both physically demanding and social. A friend suggested trying a Jiu Jitsu class together. Brandon had briefly trained Karate in his youth and still had the desire to train in the Martial Arts. The first class was an eye-opener, the instructor completely dismantled him with a large grin and without even breaking a sweat. Brandon was hooked.
Brandon is currently a black belt. He trained for twelve years under Jared Emfield at the Academy of Martial Arts (Pedro Sauer Affiliate) and Soma Jiu Jitsu Academy Idaho. He will continue his Jiu Jitsu journey in the Pedro Sauer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association.
Outside of Jiu Jitsu, Brandon is married and has a beautiful daughter. He works as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist.
