Also known as "Big Will", he quickly fell in love with the "Gentle Art" and started consistently training a few hours every day! With so many hours logged on the mats and with such enthusiasm, Will began competing frequently in prestigious local and international Jiu-Jitsu tournaments (Gi & No-Gi). Ever since his first competitive match he has climbed to the top of the podium many times and has collected an impressive amount of medals.
