Black Belt Instructor
Greg Souders is an instructor under 3rd degree black belt Dave Jacobs and runs an affiliate school called Lineage BJJ. Although he originally came from another program, Greg was Dave Jacobs’ first black belt promotion. Greg’s initial focus when starting jiu jitsu was to become a world class black belt but his competition career was cut short due to a neck injury that caused serious spinal cord damage.
Because of this, Greg decided rather than to focus on himself he would help others reach the goals he originally sought. He shifted his full attention to becoming a coach and has been coaching jiu jitsu for 8 years now. He and his competitors travel around the U.S. chasing the dream of competition success. He has produced medalists at every level from white to black, at every level of competition, from NAGA to the IBJJF Pan-American and World championships.
