“Jiu Jitsu has defined my life in nearly every way.”
Nathan is a professional black belt jiu jitsu competitor and an instructor who has the biggest love for jiu jitsu. He was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA. His passion for martial arts started at the early age of 4, with karate and the Korean martial art Ho Guk Mu Sul. With his already broad experience in martial arts, he dived full-on into jiu jitsu at age 10. His career as a competitor and instructor started when he was a blue belt, and he quickly became one of the rising stars among adult black belt competitors. He accomplished many victories by participating in world-class events such as IBJJF American Nationals (2020), the IBJJF European Open (2018), and many others. Nathan says, “I love how teaching helps me to better understand my own game and the techniques I use myself. I feel like I only fully understand a technique after I have taught it repeatedly over a long span of time.” With his goal to share his knowledge with the jiu jitsu community as a competitive athlete and an instructor, Nathan brought his course, “16 Armbarz” to JJX users.
