Geoff first met John Will while in Australia in October 1995. Geoff, along with his training partner Ko, traveled to Geelong for a private lesson with John.
In 1996 Geoff and Ko again traveled to Geelong for a seminar this time with the legendary JJ Machado at the Geelong academy. It was an experience that Geoff would never forget.
“The seminar with Jean Jacques was great and John’s Geelong guy’s were unreal. Their skill level on the mat was beyond anything that I had expected and left me stunned and speechless for days.”
Some of the highlights of BJJ for me so far would have to be my friendship with John Will, my Black Belt from John in November 2007, Placing second to my old mate Doug in the Nationals 2002 and my training trip in July 2002, where I got to meet some of the big names in Johns BJJ organisation and stay with John.”
BJJ is now a huge part of Geoff’s life and his passion for it is evident in his dedication to John’s BJJ Australia organisation. Geoff is the self styled WebDude for John’s Website www.bjj.com.au and also looks after the running of this site.
