Brian Asheland

Brian started training Brazilian Jiujitsu in 2013 in Gainesville, Florida. He is an accomplished Purple belt who competes as often as he can. He has a passion for rolling and that passion shows through when he teaches.

"BJJ helped me take control of my life. I was overweight, bored, and carrying around a lot of baggage. My first night, I had a girl who was half my size take me down and just strangle me. Since then I've been hooked! I thought, if she can do that, then I can do that. And it's not only the physical changes that have been awesome (I lost almost 50lbs my first year), but mental too. I don't feel like the world is challenging me anymore. I'm super confident. I can focus better and feel like things that used to stress me out just aren't a big deal. I feel like combat sports, but especially BJJ, helped turn my entire life around. Plus, my daughter thinks I fight pirates all day, and that's pretty cool." -Brian
