Athlete Biography

I am a passionate green entrepreneur and an enthusiastic student of Martial Arts. My Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu journey started a few years ago when I discovered it in an attempt to improve my Judo groundwork. Needless to say, Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu immensely helped my Judo game. In turn, my Judo background certainly compliments my Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. This, combined with a strong Muay Thai clinch game, makes me a skilful and capable no-gi grappler. Some of my most recent competitive achievements include a 2nd place in the pro division of a national ADDC tournament; Gold Medal at the 2015 South African Judo Open Championships; a bronze and silver medal at Monster Clash 2 in 2014; and a dozen or so gold and silver medals in recent Provincial Judo Tournaments.
