Andrew Hanson is the Head Instructor for the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program.
Coach Andrew has studied Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since 2012 and is a Blue Belt under Professor Pat Cooligan of our affiliate club, the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts. He has a gift for teaching, and is able to help anyone understand not only the techniques of BJJ, but also the underlying concepts as well. He believes that knowing how to perform a technique does not matter if you do not understand its purpose and how to apply the technique realistically.
Coach Andrew has a passion for Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and literally lives his training. Between his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training and his Kickboxing training, he can be seen in the gym every day at any given time!
Coach Andrew is available for Personal Training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing Basics.
