Mike Ryder

Mike is real student of jiu-jitsu, having studied the art for over a decade, going all the way back to the inaugural UCONN jiu-jitsu club which he and Dustin were founding members of. RGWhen that experience gets combined with his medical knowledge of anatomy and physiology, you end up with a complete grappler that epitomizes the concept of technique over everything.  Mike pays special attention to the little aspects of grappling, and loves to drill moves with anyone who is willing until it becomes second nature. He runs the Monday and Wednesday beginner classes with a focus on fundamentals of jiu-jitsu that are applicable at every level.
