Steve was never
Less than a year into his training, Steve was given the rare opportunity to start teaching classes while still a white belt, which is completely unheard of in any martial art. As a blue belt, his students were ranked as the #8 BJJ team in the country by the North American Grappling Association, coming in behind Jiu Jitsu powerhouses like Team Lloyd Irvin, Gracie Barra, and 10th Planet; all of whom boast affiliate programs all over the United States.
As a blue and purple belt, Steve traveled the US compiling victories in prestigious tournaments such as IBJJF's American Nationals and Pan American tournaments as well as various NAGA and Grappler's Quest events from coast to coast.
