Coach Emily

Incase you were wondering...

I started training jiu jitsu in the summer of 2013 after training muay thai for a few years.  In 2017 I received my brown belt from Professor Josh Russel and continue to be a proud member of his team.

I've never been challenged like I have been with jiu jitsu and truly believe it has the steepest learning curve of anything I've ever done. Through jiu jitsu I've gotten to compete around the world, meet some amazing people and learn a new skill; all things that have positively impacted my life. 

I'm passionate about jiu jitsu and work hard everyday to get better so that I can be someone I'm proud of, on and off the mats. I'm excited to share and learn with you as we begin and continue on this jiu jitsu journey together, to become Tried & True.
