What to know


NOA’S FIRST INSTRUCTOR WAS BRUNO EWALD, A BLACK BELT UNDER ROYLER GRACIE, AT LONGMAN JIU JITSU. HE TRAINED THERE FOR 10 YEARS UNTIL BROWN BELT LEVEL. IN 2012 HE RECEIVED HIS BLACK BELT WITH THE BLESSING OF 6TH-DEGREE BLACK BELT NELSON MONTERO, FROM GRACIE BARRA KAUAI— TEAM POWERHOUSE. NOA IS NOW UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF ANDRE GALVAO AND THE ATOS ASSOCIATION.


NOA BEGAN INSTRUCTING IN 2006. IT’S NEVER FELT LIKE A JOB, BUT RATHER A WAY OF LIFE. HE FEELS BLESSED AND CALLED TO SHARE THE ART OF JIU JITSU AND TRANSFORM LIVES. HE’S TAUGHT AT MANY SCHOOLS AND RAN HIS OWN PROGRAMS ON KAUAI.


IN 2020, NOA MOVED TO WASHINGTON TO OPEN A SCHOOL IN THE AREA TO SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE, AND PASSION HE’S GAINED FROM THE JOURNEY.


“LEGEND” IS ACTUALLY NOA’S LOCAL NICKNAME ON KAUAI, GIVEN TO HIM BY HIS PROFESSOR AND MENTOR, JARED ESPINA. THE NAME PAYS HOMAGE TO THE ORIGINAL LEGENDS OF THE ART— THE JAPANESE ROOTS, THE GRACIE FAMILY, AND ALL THOSE ALONG THE WAY THAT TRANSFORMED JIU JITSU INTO A GLOBALLY RECOGNIZED MARTIAL ART.
