Hi, I’m Logan! I’m 16 years old and I’ve been practicing brazilian jiu-jitsu since January of 2021. I started because I wanted to learn self defense and I thought that it was interesting. Over the last few years I’ve learned important self defense skills, improved my health, and made great friendships. I’ve enjoy working with Coach Dave and Coach Missy, and they always work to help me improve my jiujitsu skills. I am an assistant coach in the four o’clock class as well as the youth five o’clock class. Working with the kids has taught me patience and discipline and I look forward to seeing them on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Evergreen. I also help run the youth program in Conifer on Monday and Wednesdays.

amazing, Muay Thai has been the one I’ve fallen in love with. For the past 8+ years, I’ve been
