Lucas started in combat sport as a wrestler in high-school, and as an MMA fan, he decided to try NoGi grappling at first. Soon after, while he was completing his Bachelor's degree in Sociology at Concordia University, he discovered Gi Jiu-Jitsu. Ever since then he has moved up the ranks competing both in the Gi and NoGi.

He has a very technical approach to the sport and has been studying the art and watching the professional athletes since his early days in Jiu-jitsu. His unique high level knowledge of the most relevant systems in modern Jiu-jitsu alongside his own developments of lapel techniques and leg entanglements are base to our curriculum.

 

When it comes to instructing, Lucas started at blue belt and for over 12 years now he has been accumulating experience in teaching all levels of jiu-jitsu for adults, kids and competitors. During the pandemic, he specialized even more in private instruction and personalized training, adding to his group classes skills.
