Chris de la Rocha
I started wrestling in 7th grade and fell in love with grappling. I lettered in 4 years of varsity wrestling and ranked impressively in California state tournaments. Moved to Washougal in 1999 where I met Trevor Burnell (black belt Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu under Romolo Barros/Rickson Gracie) and started the journey in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In 2010, I competed and won the western states police and fire games boxing gold medal. I was a defensive tactics instructor for 9 years with the Department of Corrections. I have also coached Camas High School wrestling and thoroughly enjoy coaching my 5 year old's tee-ball and soccer teams. Married for 17 years, my wife and I have three kids, 17, 14, and 7. Jiu-Jitsu (MMA) has been a big part of our life for many years which I believe has instilled a level of competitiveness and wellness throughout our family. As our children grow it is rewarding seeing their own personal growth in the sports they enjoy. Life is busy but fulfilling. Currently I am brown belt in brazillian jiu-jitsu, FCFF's amateur MMA heavy weight champion and fighter of the year, Prime Fighting's Professional MMA heavy weight champion, and currently in the UFC.
