Andreas is a Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and has 20 years of Martial Art´s experience. He is the Headcoach for the well known and very succesful Matrix Kids and Teen Program. Additionaly he is the main coach at the Homburg Location and an active competitor. The Fundamental and Women Only Classes are also taught by him and if you want to get in touch with Matrix you´ll probably talk to him as he handles most of the administration for the Gyms.
He started fighting MMA in 2005. He was 1-0 as an amateur and 2-1 pro. He recieved his purple belt from Drysdale directly and recently his brown under professor Jesse Briggs (an affiliate of Drysdale and Paulson) around 2010. He realized that most fighters did not understand that ground and stand up striking for MMA is its own art, so he began to focus his learning and instruction specifically on this.
He is the MMA-Coach of Matrix-BJJ in Kaiserslautern.
