    Started BJJ at 40, 11 years ago.

    One of my favorite highlights;

    In 1998 I recieved my purple belt from Ryan Gracie just after I submitted David Terrell with a foot lock Ryan had showed me the day before.

    I am now an instructor at the Gracie Sport Center, Cesar Gracie's Academy.

    For you BJJ graplers, check out my book, you can get it at www.BJjBook.com
