Josh Guerra Bio

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Josh Guerra started training in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu when he was 11 years old. He originally began training as a way to lose weight and build self-esteem, but after competing in his first Jiu-Jitsu tournament, he knew that he wanted to be a competitive athlete. After four and half years of training Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Josh received his blue belt and made the decision to become a part of the GD Jiu-Jitsu Association. Training under GD Jiu-Jitsu propelled Josh forward in his competition career and he competed in tournaments across the United States and won major titles against high-level competitors. In July of 2016, Josh received his brown belt from Professor Gustavo Dantas and is now ranked in the top 20 adult brown belts in the world by the IBJJF (International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation). Josh not only loves competing but has a passion for teaching others the art that has had such a major impact on his life. His hope is to be able to make a difference in people's lives and influence them in a positive way through Jiu-Jitsu.
