Dillon Gower - Head Instructor/Owner
Dillon began his martial arts journey where many others do, Tae Kwon Do as a child. After a short hiatus, in 2006 he began training in Genbukan Ninpo Taijutsu (a form of Japanese Jiujutsu) and Judo in Virginia and Maryland. In July 2008, he moved to Orlando to train at American Top Team to live the life of a humble martial artist to the fullest and pursue a career in MMA. Since then he has competed in BJJ, Muay Thai, and MMA, and he was promoted to a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 2016.
"While it may not be easy, it is extremely rewarding and I am determined to live and teach others to live the way of the warrior for the rest of my life. See you on the mats. Osu!”
