Professor Dennis is a native of St. Charles County, having spent his childhood and teenage years growing up in St. Peters, MO. Dennis decided to start training after signing up 3 of his children. After being intrigued by the art since we first saw it 20 years prior, he could no longer simply watch this sport as a spectator and he began studying in BJJ.
Professor Dennis enjoys spending his time off the mats with his family, enjoying the outdoors fishing, and–of course–more jiu jitsu.
Professor Dennis is a 2017 IBJJF World Masters gold medalist, multiple-time gold medalist in the American Grappling Federation in Gi and NoGi competition in multiple states, and holds honors in other organizations as well.
