Dr. Shark Man - brand spanking new coach!

posted 20 Feb 2014, 14:06 by Mma Saints
A quick update and massive welcome to our newest coach Yannis Papastamatiou!

Having trained in Hawaii and Florida under Relson Gracie, Ronn Shikari and Beto Nunes, Yannis holds a black belt in BJJ. He has competed in the Pacific International and Hawaii State Championships and in 2008 he won the NAGA Championships in both the gi and no-gi categories. As indicated by the red stripe on his belt, he has taught BJJ since 2005 and we are extremely lucky to have him.

Yannis also holds a PhD in Zoology/Animal Biology and he is undertaking a research fellowship at the School of Biology here at St Andrews. On top of all this, he's a great guy!
