Introducing Coach Kevin Southworth, the dynamic nucleus of Lineage BJJ® Saint Mary's. Kevin represents more than just an instructor; he's the embodiment of passion and dedication to the art and sport of jiu-jitsu. His narrative is a testament to the transformative power of martial arts.

Kevin's initiation into martial arts traces back to 2017 at Calvert MMA®, where the seeds of his jiu-jitsu admiration were sown. Drawing from his high school years as a wrestler and a rugby enthusiast at Saint Mary's College of Maryland, Kevin seamlessly transitioned into the intricate world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
