I've been wrestling/grappling since 2010 where I wrestled locally at Maple Mountain High in Spanish Fork. My senior year our school was undefeated and we became state champions. Being in a room with so much talent pushed me to continue my training. I started Jiu Jitsu in 2013 at UVU with the current coach Michael Pease. After a few semesters there I decided to expand my training and signed up for the Pit Elevated where Dayne was one of the head coaches. I've been with him ever since and have loved being one of his students.
