ROGAN

I'm 6'4", 255 lbs, and I’ve been a student of the BJJ Game since I was 18 years old.  I’m a Black Belt under Omar Cruickshank, and I’ve trained just about everywhere in the Philadelphia area.  I’ve also been a strength and conditioning coach for 14 years, Certified through AAAI/ISMA.  I taught GI/No-Gi under Kevin Quigg at Twisted Misfit JJ in Maple Glen for 6 years, and I’ve helped many students Polish their game.  My style is grounded strongly in fundamental techniques and principles, but my game can be very experimental and flow oriented.  You find me somewhere between an armbar and a Peruvian Necktie.
