INSTRUCTOR PROFILE: – Alex

You have now all met and been taught by this energetic and enthusiastic young man. He has been training since he was 2.5 years old and it is clearly his driving passion.

He matriculated in 2013 at Fairmont High School and was graded to his Black Belt in CJA Jiu-Jitsu in December of 2014 with his 1st Dan being earned in December 2016.

Dynamic, involved and with a huge passion for children and jiu-jitsu – we are excited for an amazing year ahead

INSTRUCTOR COURSE

Part of what we do at CJA is to develop students that have potential to become future CJA instructors. The program is called L.E.A.D.E.R [Learning Excellence And Developing Empowered Responsibility]

This year our program kicks off with our usual day camp and TWO brand new cadet instructors – watch as these young students grow and excel at Jiu-Jitsu and become tomorrows’ leaders!

That is it for this newsflash – wishing you all a great week and see you all soon

Take care

Mike and the Instructor Team
