Tim’s Jiu Jitsu journey began in early 2018. After training amateur boxing on and off for a few years at Pro-Fit Boxing, he decided learning to grapple would be a good supplement to his striking.
Introduced to Murat Besnek through Tahjn Hammill, Tim quickly became hooked on Jiu Jitsu. What was intended to be a twice a week hobby while still training boxing, Jiu Jitsu quickly became the preferred martial art for Tim.
Tim has competed at the Pan Pacific championships and Melbourne Grappling Industries round robin tournament.
Being a full time teacher at Coolaroo South Primary for the better part of a decade, Tim’s experience working with kids is used to support Murat with Kids Jiu Jitsu classes.
