It’s with great pleasure to announce our newest affiliate, Impact Jiu Jitsu owned and operated by Kenny Kim out of Atlanta Georgia. After spending some time with Kenny in Atlanta and having him out at my Academy in San Jose we felt he will be a great fit for the association.
A little about Kenny from his website
“Raised here locally Kenny Kim attended elementary school through high school in Cobb County Georgia. He started training martial arts at the age of 4 and never stopped. In 2000 he found his true calling and passion in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ. BJJ he felt gave him something he was missing, the tools to truly become a “better person” on and off the mat.
After 10 years, Kenny received his Black Belt in Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Eddie Camden. It was an honor to have UFC hall of famer and legend, Royce Gracie personally tie the black belt around his waist. Now a 1st degree black belt, Professor Kenny lives and believes in the jiu jitsu lifestyle, training and spreading jiu jitsu all over the world.
Professor Kenny also trained in tae kwon do, western style Boxing, Muay Thai, and MMA. Coming up through the ranks he was an avid competitor. After he received his black belt he took some time off from to concentrate on the academy but has since started competing again,
In addition to his academy he has also taught local and federal DEA teams and the famous BOPE (Brazilian Special Forces Police Team) in defensive tactics. Kenny still trains daily with his students, and attends multiple camps and seminars always trying to improve! He gives back to the community and often offers Self Defense workshops for women. When not training you may see him cruising on his long board, mountain bike or on his Vespa around time. “
WELCOME KENNY KIM AND EVERYONE FROM IMPACT JIU JITSU!
