Hello! My name is Elijah. I currently live in western NC, near the Smokies. I work for a domestic violence/sexual assault agency, primarily doing work in prevention and also male victims/survivors. I served in the Navy (active and active reserves) and Army (active). I’m a long time Martial Arts. Started with Kung Fu. Trained in and taught Muay Thai. Currently a purple belt in BJJ training at Gracie North Carolina. I took one of Ernest Emerson’s courses years ago which sparked a focus on Combatives. Took Dom Raso’s blade course as well. I’ve been a long time fan and customer of 100 Deadly Skills/Violent Nomad. Looking forward to being part of the community here!
