Coach Dalton Speller

Where are you from?

Born in Nashville, grew up in DC, Chicago, and Milwaukee. Moved back to the area in 2006.

When did you start doing Jiu Jitsu?

May 26th, 2021 at Legion

Why did you start doing Jiu Jitsu?

My son Jeffrey had been training for a few months. After seeing him begin to put things together, I realized that in order to help him, I’d have to do more than watch.

Why do you like teaching?

For several reasons. First, there’s no better feeling than seeing someone’s eyes light up when they do something correctly that you showed them how to do. Second, the best proof that you understand something, is the ability to pass that understanding on to someone else. Finally, and selfishly, I love getting to coach my son. I’ve even gotten to corner for him in competition. I believe that’s every good father’s dream opportunity.

List some of your accomplishments?

Stepping on the mat for the first time, and continuing to do so for the past 2 1/2 years. I achieved my blue belt in July 2022. I’ve competed multiple times, including IBJJF Master Worlds in 2023.
