Coach John Laird has been training over a decade and teaching Jiu Jitsu since 2016. He was recently promoted to Black Belt in May 2018 by his instructor Mike Cusi.
If you attend one of John’s classes you will know he is constantly encouraging his students to do their best and to ask questions. He is supportive on and off the mat. Stronghold is not a team but a family unit for John.
He believes there is always room for self improvement and is always trying to learn new moves to teach his class.
John’s favorite position is close guard and he will find a way to use his lapel wizardry on you while in closed guard. Watch out!
