Meet our friend Eric.
Eric Beasley is our Jiu Jitsu Spotlight member of the month!
Eric has been with a part of our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy for more than 2 years. His friend Ryan invited him out to try a class and he was instantly hooked!
He is a great training partner and hard worker, and always finds a way to fill the room with laughter He loves BJJ so much that he started an apparel company that sells BJJ related shirts, sweatshirts, and hats (which we totally love). Eric even brings his daughter to train with us sometimes.
