At the conclusion of his wrestling career in 2006, Mike began training jiu-jitsu at various academies throughout Pennsylvania. During this period, he completed a short stint in amateur MMA compiling an undefeated record. In 2009, he moved back to New Jersey and joined Professor Ricardo Almeida’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy. Throughout his career he has competed in various Jiu-jitsu competitions ranging from the IBJJF world championships to military combative tournaments. In 2017, he joined Professor Chris Matakas, in support of his vision to bring world-class jiu-jitsu to the Burlington Township area.
Mike currently serves as a pilot in the United States military. Although his military service has required him to take the occasional hiatus from the gentle art, it has also afforded him the opportunity to grow, train, and share experiences with various academies and clubs across the globe. Mike is committed to developing leadership, confidence, and purpose throughout his community.
