Head coach for jiu jitsu – 10th Planet Maribor!
A native of Slovenia, Gregor encountered martial arts at an early age of six. He trained in various traditional styles, including Judo and Japanese jiu jitsu, and kickboxing until College. Upon graduating from University in the States, he continued his fascination with martial arts for 17 years in San Francisco Bay Area and Utah as a student and international competitor in Brazilian jiu jitsu, grappling and MMA, and then as a coach instructing at 10P San Mateo and 10P Oakland.
To round out his grappling and coaching skills, he studied grappling and wrestling at the University of Grappling under Marc Brewer in Utah for 3 years and relocated to Ukraine for a year to further his wrestling and Olympic weightlifting. In recent years, he has been striving to help others on a similar path, with a systematic and comprehensive approach around the world, and now also in Slovenia.
