Since then, Dan has burst onto the competition scene making quite a name for himself in the process. He has won numerous titles at the local and regional levels, yet most recently made his mark on the world stage in 2013 (winning a silver and bronze medal). Dan’s passion for Jiu-Jitsu combined with his unique style and element of grace in which he brings to the Jiu-Jitsu mat has made him a stand out. His humble personality and desire to help others has also made him a very popular and well respected instructor.
