Meet The Team

Mike started training BJJ in 2011. He was promoted to brown belt by Rafael Lovato Sr. Mike loves to lead our kids team on the mats and into competition. He loves to see students succeed in all their goals & challenges, on & off the mat. Mike is an active competitor alongside his wife and daughters. He believes Jiu Jitsu goes beyond grappling, that the principles learned can be applied in all aspects of life.  

Troy started his Martial Arts journey in 1985 after watching too many Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris movies. He received his Black Belt in Taekwondo in 1989. He began Jiu Jitsu in 2016 under the tutelage of Michael Munoz. He is currently a 4 stripe purple belt. He loves coaching kids and adults. He strives to not only get down to business but also to help make each program fun & exciting! 

Stephanie is the first person you will most likely meet when walking in. She is there to greet you and help you with any questions you might have. She also wanders into the gym area often, taking pictures and videos for our social media accounts. As a former Teachers Aide for 10 years in the public school system, she loves to help you and your family feel welcome and at home.

Plus many other coaches and behind the scene rockstars that make it all possible!
