Toshi Mori

 Toshi hails from Aomori. This prefecture in Northern Japan is known to breed warriors such as the grandfather of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mitsuyo Maeda (coincidentally even went to the same high school!). Toshi’s jiu jitsu journey began 18 years ago after he moved to Portland for college.  He continued his training after he moved back Japan, returning to the US in 2009. He was awarded his black belt from Keisuke Andrew (founder of Enso Jiu Jitsu) in 2017. 

Hans Han 

 Hans originates from Albuquerque, NM. The child of Taiwanese immigrants, Hans attempted to connect to his roots by spending much of his childhood pouring over martial arts books borrowed from the library and attempting to recreate the moves, often on his unsuspecting siblings. He then wrestled in high school finishing with a solidly mediocre record. He then had a break from grappling until he wandered into an MMA gym while living in Tokyo. He began his formal training after moving to Portland in 2009. It was here that he first trained with Toshi. Hans received his black belt from Keisuke Andrew in 2020.

This influence from Snoderly set Ryan on the path of being a life long grappler and developed a passion for both training and coaching. In 2011, Ryan started to train Judo at Portland Judo and is currently a Nidan (2nd degree black belt) under his Sensei Roy Kawaji. He is currently training under Elan Adre at Bridgetown Judo.
