Hi there, Welcome to my profile! I lived in Japan for over 12 years and went from white belt to black belt directly under Yuki Nakai becoming his only non-Japanese black belt. I have also taught at/been to over 20 BJJ Globetrotters camps and am an active member in that community. If you have any questions, need bad dating advice or juvenile humor in general, hit me up! Also, I will likely not verify your rank if I dont know you, never rolled with you etc etc. Thanks, and stay off my damn lawn :P ! Aaron

His promotion history is as legit as it can be and his jiu jitsu holds up even when he has rolled with 200 people before you - what more can you expect from a jiu-jitsu BB?

Aaron has a diskrete BJJ Game including an amazing Collar&Sleeve Guard. He clearly resembles Yuki Nakai‘s style and is one of very few instructors that will provide you straight with his A-game techniques.
