Hello, and welcome to Jiu-Jitsu On the Go. I have the profound privilege of being able to offer and share the gift of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I am a stand that everyone in the world gets this Martial Art in their life. It is truly transformational and brings about a higher quality of life for everyone. Here is a little about me!
I began training Jiu-Jitsu in 1997, while stationed in Hawaii, under Grand Master Relson Gracie (ranked white-black) and was awarded my black belt in 2009. I met Master Caique Elias, as a blue belt, and would eventually seek tutelage under him when I became a second degree black belt. As a practitioner who was primarily exposed to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, my game is simple and effective. After 22 years of training (11 years as a competitor, 9 years as a head instructor and academy owner), my teaching style is concept-based, this allows for the student to experience noticeable results immediately. My goal is to impact your game and help you on your journey.
I started wrestling when I was six years old. I’ve trained under Olympic champions, National champions, and world champion Black Belts.
In High school, I qualified multiple times for State and placed. In college, I qualified for the National Tournament both years I competed.
In 2008, I ended my wrestling career and moved to Colorado, where I immediately started training under UFC vet and Rigan Machado Black Belt, Brad Gumm. This is where jiu-jitsu became my new passion. I have enjoyed the discipline and confidence it has given me. I especially enjoy the artistic side of the sport.
I was awarded my Black Belt under Brad Gumm after five years of training and winning multiple tournaments at the Black Belt level. Challenging myself and learning the highest level of technique has always been my focus.
I started training at Katharo Jiu-Jitsu under Steve Hordinski for that reason. I was immediately humbled and excited when I started training there. I am also a student under American combat sports coach Neil Melanson. As a teacher, I run a drill-based class with an openness to creativity.
I’ve been instructing, mentoring, and coaching wrestling and jiu jitsu for 11 years now. I’m committed to sharing all my knowledge of grappling and helping students internalize that information. I want my students to maximize their human potential in every aspect of their lives. My future is becoming a more well rounded instructor and martial artist.
In this online series, Professor Scott Miller will be breaking down a variety of No Gi leg attacks from half guard. In the first video of this four part series we focus on proper positioning and grips to set up and finish the Knee Bar.
In this video we are going to "roll" things in a different direction with this solid Toe Hold finish. Remember the control of your opponent always comes down to good grips...both with the hands and the legs.
