David began training at Neutral Ground in January of 2019. In addition to an increased sense of confidence, strength, and peace of mind, Jiu Jitsu has given him a newfound zeal for life. He is fascinated with the physical, mental, and technical aspects of the art.
Yoga has been a part of David’s life since he was 15, when he found a copy of ‘Light on Yoga’ by BKS Iyengar on a dusty bookshelf in his dad’s basement. He found his first teacher and began formally studying to become an instructor in 2012. In 2015, he completed teacher training and became a certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor. He believes yoga, like Jiu Jitsu, has the power to transform and enrich the human experience.
David is completing a Master of Sciences degree in Kinesiology at UW – Milwaukee, where he plans to seek admittance to the Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2022.
