Adam has been coaching athletes or nearly 20 years in a variety of sports and youth programs. He was first introduced to Gracie Jiu Jitsu and JKD in the early 1990s, but at the time martial arts was more of a hobby. After finishing his college basketball career, he started training formally at Fairtex, the world-renowned Muay Thai School in San Francisco (1997). In 2000, he further expanded his martial arts training by starting his JKD instructorship training with Sifu Tom Cruse. Adam earned his Senior Instructorship in JKD/Kali under Tom Cruse/Paul Vunak. With a strong passion for training youth, Adam soon realized the value in opening a school that would combine the unique and contemporary styles of Gracie Jiu Jitsu and JKD, and thus created McKenzie Martial Arts. Since it’s opening, Adam became the 1st Certified Gracie Instructor in the Pacific Northwest and was the first martial arts instructor ever to be honored as one of the “Top 20 under 40 rising stars in business” in Lane County. In addition to running his own school, Adam is also the Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Jeet Kune Do instructor at the University of Oregon.
