I have been training in Martial Arts for 9 years and have a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Brown Belt in Uechi Ryu Karate and achieved the rank of 5th Kyu in Aikido. I have more than 10 years of wrestling experience and teach an adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program with applied wrestiling fundamentals at Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts (DWMMA), in Salem Massachusetts. I began my training in BJJ over 6 years ago. I have trained diligently under Kenny Florian (Florian Martial Arts Center), Matt Thornton (Straight Blast Gym, SBGi) and currently under Dennis Cregier of DWMMA and Tim Burrill (Tim Burrill Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu).
My background, combine with my art and architecture education had resulted in the production of my first tie dyed gi. I really did it for myself with no expectation there would be a public interest in the martial arts world. Two years later www.happykimonos.com was launched and we have been producing custom dyed and tie dyed gis to martial artists across the world since. I have met some great people along the way and enjoy the one on one contact I have with each of my customers.
That’s plenty about enough about me. I hope you enjoy the content of this blog and our website as much as I have in putting it together.
“Live Happy, Dye Happy”.
