If you could walk us through a day or week in your life what would it consist of? Monday through Friday you can find me at the Kingwood Elite. I am always on the mat with students, during class and after class answering questions. I am passionate about my students advancement in the Mixed Martial Arts, and it is really rewarding for me to see them progress through the art that has done so much for me.
