    Michael Phelps

    Black Belt

    Read bio

    Born in San Diego, California

    To many‘s surprise Mike’s training did begin by influence nor by lineage. Rather, it was kickstarted by casually watching one of the greatest UFC comebacks (Mir v.s. Lesnar) in February of 2008. It was from there that Mike defined his passion to pursue a sport that embodied all the traits that were showcased in that fight (Adversity, Knowledge and Stamina). From there, there was no looking back.

    In only seven years Mike was presented with his Black Belt, a feat that many would deem as nearly impossible. Though throughout his training and competing he began to truly discover his ultimate dream, teaching. It was in August of 2015 that – that dream became a reality when he opened up Del Mar Jiu-Jitsu Club.

    Mike has considerable experience as both a coach and mentor for students of all ages. He has a proven track record of successfully introducing students to Jiu-Jitsu, and guiding them along in their journey.

    He whole-heartedly believes that every student that participates is unique. Thus, he suites instruction to each student’s individual needs. The result is an efficient route to reach both the mental and physical goals that you set for yourself. All of this is done in an environment that is both fun and productive.

    Club Classes

    Incorporating self-defense techniques & fun games directed to improving your child’s motor skills, agility, & flexibility, our kids class teaches discipline and helps significantly build confidence.

    Incorporating the gi or kimono, our adult classes involves learning how to take down the opponent, controlling them, & potentially submitting them through the application of joint locks and chokes.

    Our No-Gi classes are great way to learn the same modern jiu-jitsu taught in our traditional gi classes, including both fundamental and advanced lessons.

    Private lessons are a great way to get in-depth instruction, tailored to your strengths and weaknesses. Del Mar Jiu-Jitsu members and visitors of all levels are welcomed.
