Phil began his BJJ journey in 2012 and has been under the guidance of Professor Hoss,
progressing from blue to brown belt. His enthusiasm lies in exploring new techniques and
supporting others to enhance their abilities, fitness, and self-assurance.
Whether he’s leading a class or supporting the tots program at Bairro, he remains actively involved. Together with his wife, he oversees their children’s Muay Thai training. Going beyond the realm of martial arts, Phil dedicates his time to introducing yoga to patients at a rehabilitation clinic, aiding in their recovery from addiction.
Phil firmly believes that BJJ transcends mere
sportsmanship, serving as a platform for diverse individuals to unite and apply the invaluable
lessons learned on the mats to their daily lives.
