BJJ Black Belt – 1st Degree – Head Instructor
Paul began his martial arts journey in England in 1995 training in Kung Fu, traditional Ju Jitsu and personal self-protection. Not long after this Paul began trying many other martial arts and finally decided that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was right for him.
It was here that Paul trained under Neil Owen (Infinity Head Instructor) and Neil White at the Doncaster Judo Club (as it was known then). In 2001 Paul visited the Gracie Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to train and further his knowledge and experience.
Moving back to England Paul opened his own club – teaching BJJ and MMA and having many successful fights himself and training many successful fighters. This club still runs to this day.
In 2014 Paul decided it was time for a sea change and headed to Australia with his family, where he took a position as the Head Instructor of the Infinity Maroochydore academy.
He now teaches at our new Kawana Waters academy alongside Neil Owen. Paul is one of the most experienced BJJ black belts in the region
BJJ Brown Belt – Assistant Instructor
Beginning martial arts training at age 10, Jake quickly became very passionate about martial arts training in whatever he could get his hands on.
Prior to training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) he has previously trained Boxing, Muay Thai, Judo, Japanese Ju-Jitsu and Karate.
While passionate about martial arts as a whole he was particularly interested in grappling styles of martial arts and in 2014 he began his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey with Infinity Martial Arts. With prior martial arts experience and a enthusiastic (some would say obsessive) approach to training allowed Jake to progress quite quickly in the sport.
Since graduating high school Jake has been training and coaching full time in the hopes to become a high level martial artist and coach. Jake is also an avid competitor and has been actively competing across all belt ranks. Some notable achievements include:
* 2x QLD State Championship Gold Medalist * 3x South Pacific Championship Gold Medalist * 4x Grappling Industries Championship Gold Medalist * 4x Lockdown Submission Wrestling Gold Medalist * 4x Brisbane Championship Gold Medalist * 2x Byron Bay Open Gold Medalist * Sunshine Coast Championship Gold Medalist * Number 1 Ranked Advanced Featherweight in Lockdown 2016 * Number 1 Ranked Adult Male No-Gi Purple Belt in Queensland 2016
