As previously mentioned, Gracie Barra, Newmarket will be setting up shop in Asgard from now on.
Ian Sheehan is our resident head coach who will be overseeing all training undertaken at Gracie Barra, Newmarket. I’ve taken the time to collaborate with him and get a few words so to properly introduce you to Ian, This is what Ian is about:
Ian is a retired U.S. Air Force veteran, Special Missions Aviator of the Combat Search and Rescue 33rd Squadron.
Click the following link to see a video of him during this time https://youtu.be/0JLogzysroc
His family is circled around BJJ. He trains, competes, and coaches; his wife and two sons train at his academy. His oldest, Jak, actively competes as a yellow belt.
With over 20 years of varied Martial Arts experience he started at the age of 15 in Normal, Illinois. Originally training as a Muay Thai kickboxer under Don Heatrick (https://heatrick.com/), he started BJJ officially in Okinawa, Japan in 2013.
Ian joined Gracie Barra in 2015, he soon moved up the ranks to become a IBJJF Ranked Competitor. In January, 2018, Coach Ian was awarded his purple belt directly from Professor Victor Estima of GB Nottingham.
Why teach? Coach Ian sees what Gracie Barra BJJ does for him and his immediate family.
His goal is to pass the knowledge he's gained to others; be it for Martial Arts knowledge, self-defence, confidence, a sense of community or just for fitness. Seeing his students gain from his teachings is what brings him happiness.
Initially we will be holding a reduced time table as Ian has prior commitments that he is obliged to fulfil. ****TIME TABLE AS OF MONDAY 18th JUNE 2018**** MONDAY: 5:30PM - 6:30PM (All levels welcome)
