Program Director & Kids Coach
Melissa doubles up as Kids Coach and loves every minute! When someone really loves their job it makes it amazing for everyone around them! 😊
Jordan is a huge character at Gracie Barra Yate. Being one of the original members joining in 2018, Jordan has never looked back! They call him the ‘baby face assassin’ but you can’t be fooled by his light-hearted and friendly demeanour as his Jiu-jitsu is top tier. Jordan’s personality and teaching style are a fan favourite, the children absolutely adore his tone, style and personality which makes him the best combination for our GBK class!
