Owner & Head Instructor

Avery is the dedicated head instructor and owner of Mastery Martial Arts.

His journey in martial arts commenced over 16 years ago, exploring the realms of Capoeira, Taekwondo, Karate, Muay Thai and freestyle wrestling. However, it was in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that Avery discovered his true passion.

Captivated by the art's technical effectiveness and the profound impact it had on his life, he made a pivotal decision early on – to share his love of Jiu-Jitsu with others.

In 2017, he began his personal journey in BJJ, and within a short span, he honed his skills to become a formidable practitioner and local competitor.

With over six years of teaching experience, Avery has acquired a great deal of skill and competence as an instructor and mentor for his students.
