Coach Andrew Wooten
4th Degree Brown Belt

To me BJJ means a way of life. It is a key factor in my daily decision-making, whether it’s diet, training regimen, or choosing to act in a positive manner in order to be a role model to those around me. It is the life I choose to live. To some, Jiu Jitsu is just a hobby, to others it’s a form of self defense, but to me and a small percentage of people that train it’s the pursuit of a passion that will last a lifetime. a life style and a way of life we choose to live. For the past 3 years I have completely dedicated my life to Jiu Jitsu and Gracie Barra, and I could not imagine my life any other way.
