Cruz Bryan



Cruz Bryan first experienced grappling while wrestling in high school and began his Jiu Jitsu journey in early 2009 when he attended a level one Modern Army Combatives instructor course during basic training in Ft. Benning, Georgia. Immediately he found a passion for this fun and unique martial art. In 2010, he became acquainted with brown belt Dave Hagen in Salem, Oregon. Under the tutelage of Hagen he would achieve the rank of purple belt, place top three in multiple subleague tournaments in the beginner, intermediate and purple belt divisions and would complete the level two MACP instructor certification. During this time, he also ventured into the world of MMA through Team Chaos resulting in a 2-2 record with two first round submission wins. In the spring of 2015, Cruz began training at the Oregon Pound under black belt Mike Downing in Corvallis, Oregon where he would hone a simple, aggressive and highly effective personal style. After moving back to Salem in the fall of 2015 he started training under black belt Daniel Priebe and found his skills improving rapidly, ultimately leading to a 1st place finish at the 2016 Ground Warrior tournament. Cruz earned his purple belt under black belt Professor Daniel Priebe. He combines a broad range of competitive experience with an education in psychology to provide detailed instruction tailored to the individual student. He believes that everyone can find success with Jiu Jitsu through dedication and patience.
