Dennis Started martial arts in 1988 with Okinawan Karate at a YMCA in Pennsylvania. After moving to Virginia his martial arts training was put on hold until 2005. It was at this time that he met his wife Gabrielle who is the step-daughter of Grandmaster Mountain Kim who operates numerous martial arts schools in the Northern Virginia and DC area. Dennis picked up his training and never looked back. He is currently a 4th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, 2nd Degree Black Belt in Judo, 1st Degree Black Belt in Hapkido, and a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Yamasaki Academy). Dennis has won countless medals, belts, and awards in grappling and is a 2013 Senior National Champion in Judo. Dennis is on the mats everyday and is currently working towards his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In his time off the mats Dennis enjoys spending time with his wife, three sons, and daughter, fishing, and hiking.
