Military Alumni Instructor – Luis Morales

Luis Morales began training Gracie Jiu-Jitsu while being stationed in Germany with the U.S. Air Force.  Upon his transfer back to the United States, Luis was assigned to Joint Base Andrews (JBA) in Camp Springs Maryland.  Before unpacking, Luis Morales became a member of the Relson Gracie team at Calvert MMA – Lineage BJJ.  Within a year of Luis Morales training at Calvert MMA – Lineage BJJ, the Academy training schedule expanded to five days a week and Luis began teaching our new NoGi class.  Luis Morales was a vital part in of the growth of the Calvert MMA Academy – Lineage BJJ.  In 2010 Luis Morales was transferred and we lost a great instructor and friend from our coaching lineup.  Luis Morales has made many deployments in harms way since his transfer.  Luis Morales is currently stationed in South Carolina with his family and we look forward to him make a road trips up to Maryland to visit us.
