He started training with ADCC veteran, Eddie Bravo, and soon after, in May 2001 started training in Tarzana, California under BJJ and ADCC world champion Jean-Jacques Machado.  

In August of 2002, he moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to train with Marc Laimon, at Nova Uniao Academy. There he also continued boxing with Skipper Kelp, UNLV's head coach. In Las Vegas he had the opportunity and great honor to train with many of the best grapplers and MMA fighters in the world.
