Jake Warren is a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt and a Certified Instructor under the Gracie Academy. Inroduced to martial arts by his brother at the age of 5, Jake’s earliest memories are of watching his brother practice Judo and Japanese Ju-Jitsu. After recieveing a Black Belt in each art Jake then went on to study Gracie Jiu-Jitsu starting over as a white belt. After his first lesson, he was hooked and pleased to discover that sucess in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu did not require him to be strong, fast and athletic. A few years after recieveing his purple belt he then went on to complete the Instructor Certification Program in July 2012 and the rest is history.
