Michael Arevalo

I met Alex and Dania back in 2018 and have trained under them ever since. I have taught youth jiujitsu classes since 2015 for other gyms and am thankful to have been given the opportunity to continue teaching at ATC.

I’m an active competitor, and I’ve achieved gold medals in both local and IBJJF tournaments as a white, blue, and purple belt. But one of my greatest achievements is helping our students in the kids class explore their potential, compete confidently, and help them become better individuals overall…that is what lights the fire to my passion in the sport of jiujitsu.
