My Jiujitsu Career started with Delaware Jiu-jitsu in Chadd Ford under the lineage of Jay Goldberg. I received my Blue belt from him in 2009 after a year of training and competing. I also received two of my stripes from him until I separated from the organization in 2012 over unresolved differences with another instructor. I continued my training and competition under the Robson Moura affiliate school (Elite Jiujitsu) which was led by now 4th Degree Black belt Jeff Mitchell. I’ve competed in a ton of minor local tournaments such as, Good Fight, Naga, US Grappling, Grapplers Quest, etc; and also a Few major ones such as ADCC trials, IBJJF, and FTW (Fight 2 Win).
I have been honored to become one of Jeff’s right-hand advisors in the gym. I have had the pleasure to travel to different countries and train with multiple World Champions over the years such as JT Torres, Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro, Saulo Ribeiro, Robson Moura, Bruno Bastos, and many more. Most of them have become close personal friends over the years and still train with them from time to time.
Jeff has been my coach throughout the majority of my Jiujitsu career and without him, I wouldn’t be the competitor, instructor, or even the person I am without him. I was honored to have been promoted from Purple belt to Black Belt under his leadership.
To become a Professor of the sport under someone that you respect the utmost is priceless.
