Black Belt



I started training in martial arts when I was seventeen in Flint, Michigan at Wolverine Martial Arts with Marvin Diem, who told me his goal was not to teach me to fight like him, but like myself. That mentality of self-discovery through training has stuck with me ever since. I received my blue belt from Matt Thornton and my purple and brown belts from Ryan Fiorenzi, both students of Coach Chris Haueter. In 2019, I reopened Wolverine Martial Arts under the Combat Base banner. Chris awarded me my black belt in 2021.
