Hayden Martz is the head instructor at Flow Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He began training about 10 years ago and is one of the founding members of the school. Hayden currently holds a two stripe brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Professor Tom Deblass. Hayden started his BJJ training under black belt Bill Thomas and Professor Aaron Blake.

Hayden takes a concept based approach to teaching, and believes that building a strong foundation grounded in the fundamental principles and concepts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the key to a student’s long term success and full development as a martial artist and athlete.

The curriculum Hayden uses in designing classes at Flow Brazilian Jiu Jitsu offers a balance of self-defense and sport techniques, and offers opportunities for both the casual hobbyist and serious athlete to thrive.
