Coach Brandon

I initially tried a few different martial arts but fell in love with grappling and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I enjoy the pursuit of something that I ’suck’ at and the continuous learning that is involved. I initially started training in Halifax in 2012 and received my blue belt in 2014.

I briefly switched focus to CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting in late 2015. I ended up doing a Master’s Degree focused on motivation and CrossFit and taught thousands of hours of group fitness classes.

When I moved to Edmonton in 2020 to attend law school, I immediately started at Bairro. The training program and the community was what I needed when moving to a new city. I received my Purple Belt from Professor Hoss. You can find me filling in at 6:00 am and some Beginner evening classes throughout the week.
