TIM YEE

BJJ Kids Assistant Instructor

A Purple Belt and familiar face around the academy, Tim has been an unconditional pillar of support to the FaMAly since joining in 2017.

 

Tim tried Taekwondo as a kid, but never found a personal connection to martial arts. Things changed when he picked up BJJ at FaMA. He did so to motivate his children, whom he had enrolled in the kids' program. There, he fell in love with the combination of intellectual and physical aspects of BJJ. Tim also attributes his mental growth and weight loss to the martial art. Having seen the benefits BJJ brings to him and his kids, Tim hopes to impart his BJJ skills to the next generation.
