These are all the belts I earned on the way towards the Black Belt MMA rank:

The style I practice is called Mixed Martial Arts or MMA. It is a mix of several techniques that include
- Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)
- Kick boxing
- Muai Tai
In this journey towards the black belt rank in MMA, I had several great instructors with backgrounds in many different styles of martial arts.
- Kurt and Caroline Schulenburg
- Allan Dyson
- Mike Budnick
- Kassandra Salgado
- Mark Millare
Currently, I'm focusing on Brazillian Jiu Jitsu. I received my first promotion in BJJ in April 2016 to the first (gray) belt. I hope to continue developing my skills in this style. I love practicing in this gym. I'm often helping demonstrating techniques with the instructor since I'm have the most senior belt in the class.
