Coach Jose

Jose Pagan is a Brow Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He holds a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Florida International University, and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois; graduating Magna Cum Lade. He served as a full-time Pastor for 15 years working with at risk teenagers across Broward and Dade county, and has most recently shifted his passion for people to work as a contractor for the Department of Defense serving the military, their families, and government forces.
