Purple Belt Coach Joey Shepherd

I started my jiu jitsu journey at 11 years old thanks to my dad looking for something new and fun for us to do together. I started competing at 14 and became a successful competitor until the age of 18 when I left for the Marine Corps. I served 4 years and came back to Missouri in May of 2023 to continue my passion for jiu jitsu training and step into coaching to share what I’ve learned.
