    Coach Kaden Knaust


    Coach Kaden graduated high school in 2021 and was born and raised in St. Charles County, MO. Coach Kaden started Jiu Jitsu in 2012 at the age of 8 after being bullied in elementary school.

    Kaden balances his time between work and training. When he is not doing one of these two things, he likes to relax and spend time with family and friends.

    Kaden is one of the few children in the Jiu Jitsu world who has been through the entire kids belt system and then on to the adult system. He is one of only two kids that his professor has ever given a green belt to in over 24 years of coaching.

    Kaden is a 2015 IBJJF Kids Pan Am gold medalist, 2018 IBJJF Nationals gold medalist, and multiple-time gold medalist in Gi and No Gi events through the American Grappling Federation, NAGA, Rev Gear, and many more all around the Midwest.
