Ryan Bourg

Both my son's, Braden and Ryan Jr, both train at Gracie United with me. As a family, we have won gold medals in previous tournaments. The best feeling is watching your kids do something they love and see them gain confidence, self control, self defense, discipline, respect, etc. Jiu Jitsu to me is a life changing experience where I am able to make life long friends that I can call family. I love being able to do a sport that our whole family can be involved in together.

  • Blue Belt under Professor Kurt Holobaugh,
  • Training for 3 years now and love it,
