Richard works in financial technology by trade. Currently, a 4th degree purple belt, Richard began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in AZ in 2011. BJJ quickly became much more than a platform to exercise, but also a shared activity with his kids - both of whom still train. Fast forward several years, and relocating to the East Coast, Richard found a home at 3G. Richard has a keen eye for the details, the patience of a saint, and a passion for coaching. As a veteran of the US Marine Corps, you will often find Richard leading veteran’s events at the gym. Richard is also an orange belt in judo.
