He moved to Katy, Texas in 2011 and began his BJJ training at Katy BJJ as a White Belt and earned all of his belts under Professor Ben. Coach Jerome competes periodically in the IBJJF Open’s and local tournaments to gauge his progress. He brings a technical approach to his Jiu Jitsu and how he teaches it. He wants to ensure you understand the “How” and the “Why” of the principles and concepts of each technique. Coach Jerome will help build confidence as he challenges and pushes you to become the best version of yourself. He wants to take you from your very 1st day where you knew absolutely nothing and build confidence within you.
His approach to teaching the kids is very simple, just don’t give up and don’t quit! You will have tough days of learning and training, just don’t give up and just don’t quit! Keep showing up! His promise to the parents is just as simple. He promises to challenge your son or daughter and provide an environment that is conducive to learning. He will not pick your son or daughter up when they fall, he will teach them how to pick themselves up with confidence, self-esteem and perseverance just as he does with his own sons. Your son or daughter will have instilled self-respect, self-discipline and a positive attitude. Most of all, Coach Jerome wants your son or daughter to be successful and have fun learning Jiu Jitsu.
