DAN GLEATON

BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU BLACK BELT

Dan has been studying martial arts for most of his life. His background is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Kung Fu, and Muay Thai. He has obtained a deep respect and knowledge of fitness through martial arts, which he gladly passes onto his students. In addition to being one of the most skilled BJJ Black Belts in the area, Dan has coached, cornered and worked with professional mixed martial artists as well as trained members of special forces in the area of Jiu Jitsu and Combatives.

Through a vigorous training regimen consisting of daily sparring sessions and obsessive technical work Dan attained his Black Belt in 4 years, a feat that is reserved to a handful of Americans. His hard work on and off the mats bloomed as Dan competed and won numerous tournaments at every level.

As a father, Dan feels it is very important to instill children with the values and lifestyle that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu offers. With his experience in life and the Martial Arts, Dan’s goal is to help his students build confidence and to guide them into an active and healthy lifestyle.
