Jairis Laurie

Assistant BJJ Coach

Jairis is a homegrown purple belt under Professor Dennis Asche. Jairis began training BJJ in 2018 at Connection Rio BJJ. Jiu Jitsu has been a constant source of enjoyment for him and his family since first stepping on the mats. Every single member of the Laurie family trains at Connection Rio BJJ.

Jairis relishes any time he can spend on the mats, and really loves the comradery and toughness the sport builds. He also love teaching in the CRA kids BJJ program and seeing the kids grow in skill and tenacity, both on and off the mats.

“Jiu Jitsu has provided an avenue of growth that positively affects each aspect of my life. It can do the same for anyone who wants to take the plunge so don’t wait to get started on your own Jiu Jitsu journey!” – Jairis
