Bruce Bugbee

Arvada, BJJ, BJJ Coach, Brown Belt

Coach Bruce started his jiu jitsu journey in 2009 under Professor Finnie McMahon, an Amal Easton black belt, in Fort Collins, CO.

Bruce had been a long-time fan of grappling but only had minimal experience with other disciplines. While looking for an outlet from the frustration of graduate school, he stumbled upon McMahon BJJ, and the rest was history.

After a brief foray to Houston, Texas, for work after finishing his Ph.D. in Statistics, Coach Bruce returned home to Colorado and joined the team at Easton Training Center West.

He has been an active competitor since white belt and has won multiple divisions at each belt level. Additionally, he is a Fight to Win Pro veteran with a current 2 – 1 professional Jiu Jitsu record. Coach Bruce remains dedicated to getting better on and off the mats every day and being the best competitor and instructor possible.‚Äč
