Professor Eddie has been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 1998. Initially, he started his martial arts journey at the age of 12 practicing the art of Judo in which he earned his Black Belt. During his training in Judo, he also studied in the arts of Tang Soo Do and Isshin-Ryu Karate. Professor Eddie eventually found Muay Thai in which he was able to incorporate this into his vast knowledge of the arts. In 2017, nearly 19 years after starting his journey in Jiu Jitsu, Professor Eddie earned his Black Belt by Professor Paul Nava (founder of Ares Arizona Brazilian Jiu Jitsu).
