Allen is known for his extensive knowledge of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that he accumulated by giving up his life in Kansas and moving across the country to study exclusively with Master Pedro Sauer. Allen went on to be the Manager and head instructor of Master Sauer’s school in Salt Lake City, Utah. After over ten years of living in Utah, Allen moved to Hattiesburg, Mississippi and opened Team Hopkins Jiu-Jitsu Association which is currently comprised of over 6 schools across the nation.

Allen has not slowed down in his desire to continue to learn Gracie Jiu-Jitsu as he currently spends any of his free time, that he is not teaching at his schools or conducting seminars world-wide, learning from Gracie Jiu-Jitsu greats such as, Master Sauer, Master Relson Gracie, Master Rickson Gracie and many more.

Why Should You Train Jiu-Jitsu?

• One in six people will be the victim of a violent attack.

• One in four women will be the victim of a sexual attack in their lifetime.

• 95% of all violent attacks and street fights end up on the ground.

• 10% of victims of violent attacks do not survive the encounter.

You DO NOT have to be a victim. You DO NOT have to be a statistic. Jiu-Jitsu is the only self-defense system in the world that effectively deals with self-defense on the ground.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a man, woman, It doesn’t matter if you are small, weak, strong, or “over the hill,” Jiu-Jitsu will give you the tools to defend yourself in a real world attack.
