ADULT PROGRAM MANAGER: Coach Dan VanDetta started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training in 2010, but his journey to improve the lives of others started much earlier than that.

Dan has coached for 4 years at the main academy and has been a primary ignition coach for the youth program, BJJ ½, and the Five Rings Murrayhill affiliate. A 4 stripe purple belt, Coach Dan competes regularly at the Pan Tournament and Master Worlds each year and has won several medals both locally and nationally. He also wrote a book, My Life as a White Belt, about his experiences as a beginning jiu jitsu student.
