I currently teach stand up striking and grappling, as well as a little Kali and I love doing so. I hope to someday own my very own academy and offer a bevy of class formats, one of them certainly being my passion; Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!
So in an attempt to prepare for that fateful day of being an instructor floating in the ocean alone I wanted to kick start my on going tutelage by not only becoming "A" coach, but rather training to be an exceptional coach! With my professor's blessings I am going to start offering private and semi-private lessons on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu / Grappling. Naturally I am limited to 5+ years of BJJ experience, and am currently a purple belt under Brian Johnson. But I think I can offer some decent insight into some of the basic principles and strategies of the gentle art that will fit into your game well.
If you are interested in arranging a lesson hit me up at 206-941-3232, or via email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can schedule some mat time. I will be charging $55/hour, or $60/hour for 2+ students. Keep in mind those loved ones with cauliflower ear over the holidays... private lessons make great stocking stuffers!
Here is one of the kindest comments a coach has ever offered me, from my friend Brian Johnson:
"Jake has a passion for the art and an eye for detail that is rare...that with an ego-less honesty make him a perfect teacher of BJJ. If you are a purple belt or below he is a great coach!"
Train Hard. Train Smart.
