Brandon Dames

Second degree black belt

Brandon is a second degree black belt in Jiu Jitsu under the legend Orlando Sanchez. Brandon has not only competed in MMA and IBJJF but has also coaches numerous MMA fighters and grapplers alike. Brandon has four black belts under him, with his athletes winning many titles and making the podium in numerous IBJJF and other organizations. Brandon has trained at the world class level of Jiu Jitsu for many years and has trained alongside 2015 ADCC champion and 2017 ADCC silver medalist Orlando Sanchez. Brandon’s early years were spent under Mitch Coats, who was Alexandre Paiva Genovesi’s (aka Gigi ) first American black belt. Brandon shared his time training between Mitch and Mitch’s black belt Christopher Dealy. Training at this level helped mold Brandon’s attention to detail adding in both concepts and wrestling. When Mitch returned to college to get his law degree Brandon continued his journey with Orlando. Brandon, well versed in grappling at this time, sought out Orlando due to his size and ability to move like a smaller opponent. Once with Orlando, Orlando put his game and grappling IQ into Brandon putting him through hard training, multiple sessions a day. This is where Brandon was introduced to low impact high intensity training and what he calls today as #Wegrind. After Orlando Sanchez passed in December of 2022, Brandon joined forces with his and Orlando’s friend, Heath Pedigo owner of PSF/Daisy Fresh. Brandon is excited to bring this level of training to the Space Coast and build champions on and off the mat. As well as provide a drama free, all are welcome atmosphere for all to enjoy.
