High Point, NC - He can't vote yet, but if he wanted to, Alan Brown could take you down in one swoop. The 17-year-old High Point native is the first student in the Triad to compete in the International Brazilian JiuJitsu Federation (IBJJF) World Championships in L.A. next month.
Alan's been training for three years at Snyder's Martial Arts in High Point for this moment. He'll compete against the top competitors in the world in the adult division.
Brown's coach, Steve Synder says Alan's got a great chance to go far in this competition. Not only is he a fierce competitor, but his high level of endurance makes him hard to beat.
Along with being a martial artist, Brown is an Eagle Scout and all around nice kid said Snyder.
Brazilian Jiujitsu (BJJ) was first introduced to the United States at the first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). The martial art sport of Brazilian Jiujitsu has grown tremendously since it was first introduced and continues to grow in popularity today.
