Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Coach
Paris first started training BJJ when he was 16, having been enamoured with martial arts from a young age and inspired by the likes of Jakie Chan and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
First training under Colin Howls of Vitor Shaolin UK then under Jeff Lawson of Team IPPON with whom he received his BJJ brown belt. After completing his degree in sports development and coaching he worked in the fitness industry before striking out with his partner to New Zealand and landing at CORE MMA in 2020.
After a stellar season on the competition front, Paris received BJJ Blackbelt in November 2022 from John Will.
