Trey Martin is a first degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and a brown belt in Kodokan judo, and co-owner of Revolution BJJ. Trey brings a lifetime of grappling experience to every class. He began wrestling in 1979, at age 6. Trey continued to wrestle all through his middle school (Tuckahoe Middle School) and high school years (Freeman High School). He has coached wrestling at Godwin High School (since the 2004 – 2005 school year).
Trey started his formal training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the end of 1997. He joined the BJJ Revolution team in 2002 at Richmond Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with Eric Burdo, and received his purple, brown, and black belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from Julio “Foca” Fernandez, the “godfather of the BJJ Revolution Team.”
Trey’s teaching style is very detail-oriented, and he makes sure each and every student training with him understands the techniques and concepts he teaches. In addition, he was intensely involved with the jiu jitsu tournament circuit not only as a coach and a competitor, but also as the head referee for US Grappling for several years. Trey enjoys focusing most of his energy on improving the quality of training at Revolution BJJ, enjoying nothing more than teaching adult and kids’ classes.
