Shawn started his Martial Arts journey in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) in 2004. He came to the North Country as a purple belt in 2016 and was confronted by the reality that continuing his journey would be difficult due to the remote area and availability of a gym that specializes BJJ. Faced with the choice of regularly traveling a considerable distance south or closing this chapter of his life he decided to open a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gym here in Lisbon, NH.
He has had the privilege of receiving instruction from many accomplished athletes in the sport during his more than 14 years of training in BJJ.
You will find that he is detail oriented and likes to have fun. “I am hoping to recreate all of the pieces that I have enjoyed from gyms over the years. My goal is to have a place where all are welcome in an environment where members can decompress mentally and reach their own personal fitness goals while learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.”
