Andy received his black belt in 2016 while training under the lineage of Professor JW Wright, Professor David Adiiv, and Master Royler Gracie. He still actively competes and enjoys challenging himself in competitions and in class. When Andy is on the mat his infectious attitude and teaching skills make him a magnet for those wanting to learn Jiu-Jitsu and better their lives. Andy recently expanded into Huntsville, Texas opening Gracie Humaita Huntsville, in November 2020.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a self-defense martial art and combat sport based on grappling, ground fighting and submission holds. It focuses on the skill of controlling one’s opponent, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds. A child who masters Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will be able to take control of an attacker and neutralize them in realistic situations.
When they gain this knowledge, the child will also develop more self-confidence. The Jiu-Jitsu self-defense skills are specifically relevant to help children deal with bullying.
