Coach Wisdom hadn’t played many sports before, but being a big fan of MMA he decided to try jiu jitsu. He started at Ballard BJJ in 2011. He was hooked. In Dec 2013, Coach Wisdom was awarded his purple belt. He has brought home gold from the army combatives tournament four years in a row. He teaches what he knows best and finds that teaching helps him train, too.

When not training jiu jitsu he spends his free time watching MMA, playing chess and spoiling his pitbull Nena.
