Daniel started studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at TBJJ in 07' and fell in love with the art after his first class.  Demetrius had him assist with the children and rec center programs after just a few months of training.  This experience led Daniel to pursue a degree in education, which he received from the U of A in 10'. 
After much hard work and dedication, Daniel is now a black belt under professor Ramos and has taken a greater role in the academy.  While taking great joy in competing himself, Daniel takes the most joy in seeing the members of TBJJ grow as individuals through Jiu-Jitsu.
