    Who is your Gracie Barra idol? 

    Prof. Kendall Reusing

     

    What does being a Gracie Barra Ambassador mean to you? 

    To me being a GB Ambassador is to uphold the promise of representing your team to the best of your ability. As a competitor, it means to uphold yourself to a 'professional athlete' standard and strive to compete amongst the very best. As an instructor, it means to continue to grow and improve your teaching style daily. As as an ambassador, it is no different. It means to align with your team's values and let your actions speak for themselves.

     

    What are your goals for 2021? 

    Hard to say during these turbulent times, but definitely compete in my new belt division. Towards the end of the year (if possible), I would love the opportunity to compete internationally at the highest level to test myself against the best of the best.
