MMA has Billy’s true passion since he started training in 1993. Billy has trained with some of the most iconic legends to current champions of the sport. Still motivated to learn he continues his training, bringing world champions from top organizations like UFC, Bellator, and One FC to Ludus MMA to conduct seminars.
Facing not one but three unfixable injuries in a matter of 6 months put me into a state of depression that I have never experienced before. It was then that I realized I will no longer be able to compete at a high level ever again. After 3 months of being depressed my amazing wife sat me down and showed me the path that I was truly meant for, teaching. It was time for me to put on my big boy pants and start working towards making world champions and running a successful business. So thats what I did.
Head MMA Coach
Specialties in: MMA, Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Personal Training
I lost one of the biggest fights of my life to the wrong person. Leading up to the fight, I wasn't mentally prepared. I wasn't enjoying training, nor anything to do with that fight camp. During the fight, I got caught with a shot that shouldn’t have been fight-ending, but I shelled up and took the loss. That experience showed me what I can take and that even though i’m hurt, it doesn't have to mean the fight is over.
I quit training for a little over a year before I was even able to fight. The break in my training was largely due to a personal sickness, which led me down a pretty rocky road. I feel like my life hit rock bottom before I finally had my “ah ha!” moment— that moment when I was finally able to step back and see my life clearly. I didn't recognize who I had become or what my life had become. From that moment, I started picking the pieces back up. I got back to training and can honestly say I have never been better.
Head Judo Coach
Specialties in: Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling
I had to work through 3 herniated discs to be able to stay in martial arts. I knew this was possible because I learned long ago that you can do anything if you refuse to give up. At one point, I had to retake the 8th grade. Now, I have a Masters in Engineering.
