Professor Dominic Luecke

Black Belt

Professor Dominic began his martial arts training at age 16. After competing in a couple of amateur kickboxing fights he decided to expand his knowledge and passion for martial arts at Gracie Barra O’Fallon. Professor Dominic spends little time away from the mats and has since been immersed in learning, competing and teaching the art. Today, he is a certified instructor, co-owner, and holds a black belt under Mike Buckels in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He has a passion for coaching and is inspired daily not just through the art of jiujitsu but through his team and instructors at Gracie Barra. Off the mats, Professor Dominic enjoys spending time outdoors, podcasts, and new and challenging activities and workouts.
