Jordan Gomez

Free world Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Jordan Gomez

Hello,

My name is Jordan Gomez, I have been training Jiu Jitsu for 15 years and I am a 2nd degree Black Belt under Aldo Januario. I am originally from Kauai, Hi, living now in Pflugerville, TX, and I am now the head instructor at Free World Jiu Jitsu – Hutto. I grew up surfing and cruising at the beach most of my days as a youngster.

I, like most at a young age, took some karate and didn’t stick with it for long. I dabbled with jiu jitsu a bit in high school and started training consistently just after graduating. I first started training with Kamole Jiu Jitsu under my Professors Kaleo and Kaeo Lopez. They quickly got me addicted to the art. I started training probably 5-6 days a week or as often as the gym would open. From there I received up to my purple belt. Shortly after I traveled to the mainland for a bit and not long after ended up back in Hawaii where I lived on Oahu for the past 11 years. There is where I continued training and received my Black Belt in 2013.

I love to compete and have competed in the highest level of competition in Jiu Jitsu, from Fight2Win , where I am currently the Black Belt Master Feather Weight champion, to IBJJF where I have fought some of the best Black Belts in the world. I believe competition is great for everyone to at least tryout. I think it tests and builds self-confidence which is a great character to have in life.

Although traveling around the world and competing is great, my real passion for Jiu Jitsu comes through teaching. There is something that drives me to see people put in hard work and surpass their expectations. I have witnessed and been a part of it first hand and it is such a great feeling. I have been teaching for about 8 years now and have found it to be more rewarding than any fight or tournament I have won. I look forward to changing people’s lives for the better, and what better way than through Jiu Jitsu. Please stop by any time to just talk story or train at Free World Jiu Jitsu, where we teach positivity through Jiu Jitsu, Our way… Aloha
