When teaching classes or correcting students the emphasis on details makes Enrique’s classes and coaching very distinct. Professor Enrique really enjoys teaching kids and making the classes fun! Professor Enrique has experience competing in sport Jiu-Jitsu and encourages his students to do the same.
“My true passion comes from teaching and coaching. Also, Self-defense has also always been #1 in my book and I make sure all my students embrace it. I really love that Jiu-Jitsu can change lives for the better. Spreading Jiu-Jitsu and serving the Tucson communities is my main goal going forward. I plan to change lives through Jiu-Jitsu.”
