Denis has been training at Crossroads for over four years, and has been coaching for more than half that time. A life long athlete, Denis brings a high level of physicality to his grappling, and is inarguably the mat-time champion of the last few years, regularly putting in 5-6 days a week of training. He runs the Friday and Sunday training/open-mat sessions and is always happy to share his knowledge with everyone who walks in the door. Denis is big fan of catch wrestling and pressure-oriented control, and has had great success on the regional grappling tournament circuit. On his rare days off, Denis can often be found gaming on PS4 or PC and working on his muscle car.
