Bob Sullivan
​Gracie Brown Belt and Certified Instructor

As someone who has been training Jiu Jitsu for well over a decade, I've had the privilege of exploring the many different aspects of this martial art. For much of my Jiu Jitsu career, I was primarily focused on the sport aspect of the practice. I loved the physical and mental challenge of competing and testing my skills against other athletes.

However, as I progressed through the ranks and became more experienced, I began to appreciate the self-defense applications of Jiu Jitsu. I realized that the techniques I was learning in class weren't just useful in the gym - they could also be used to defend myself in real-world situations.

That's why I fell in love with Gracie Jiu Jitsu. The Gracie system places a strong emphasis on self-defense and practical applications of Jiu Jitsu. Their techniques are designed to be effective in real-life scenarios, not just in competition.

As I continued to train and hone my skills, I knew that I wanted to share this passion with others. That's why I became a Gracie Certified Instructor in January 2023. I'm proud to say that I am currently the highest ranked certified instructor between Denver/Chicago and Kansas City/Canada.
