BJJ Coach: Mike Fowler

In addition to a number of major competitive achievements, Fowler is notable for the speed at which he attained the rank and is, according to some sources, the 3rd fastest American on record to do so. 

Although coming to the art with a background in high school wrestling, Fowler did not begin formal grappling training until after high school in 2001, moving to Maryland to enter into Lloyd Irvin’s advanced grappling program. Fowler’s meteoric grappling career began shortly thereafter, winning numerous private tournaments such as Grapplers Quest and achieving a Pan-American championship as a blue belt. Many championships were to follow, with career highlights of 5 American National Championships and an Asian Open Championship in the black belt absolute division.

In 2007, Fowler was invited to the ADCC, a prestigious Submission Grappling event where despite ultimately placing 4th overall, he defeated the legendary Renzo Gracie and Saulo Ribeiro, only losing to the equally elite Marcelo Garcia by guillotine and Andre Galvao by points.
