Brandon began his training in martial arts at age nine in Karate. Immediately falling in love with practicing and training Brandon has been involved with many various styles including Thai boxing, Western boxing, KungFu SanShou, Stick and Knife fighting, and Capoeria. In 2000 he was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu through a good friend, and like a fish to water found a home. He believes that the practical application of Jiu Jitsu techniques and its ability to use leverage and balance to over come an attacker or opponent makes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu one of the most effective ways to defend yourself. Beyond being the greatest martial arts workout Brandon has found, he considers BJJ to be a superior mind/body unifier. Blending over ten years experience in JiuJitsu practice and working as a personal trainer Brandon brings a extensive knowledge of the body and its mechanics. He says “It will enhance the way you move in everyday life, by giving you superior balance, coordination, and confidence.”

Brandon has competed at various tournaments winning at the highest level but considers his real accomplishments helping other people learn this art form. He believes that Jiu Jitsu can bring out the best in people who make it part of their lives.
In 2006 Brandon became an instructor for the world famous team BJJREVOLUTION . The team was founded by Carlson Gracie Black Belt’s Julio Fernandez and Rodrigo Mederos, both great masters and instructors. This makes Charlotte BJJ a second generation school under the prestigious Carlson Gracie banner. For more info check out the www.BJJREVOLUTION.com .
