Professor Nik Grove is a Fort Collins native who first decided to try jiu jitsu in 2013, and he joined McMahon team the following year. Although jiu jitsu can be humbling at times, he finds the life lessons found in the sport can make enduring tough things in other areas of life far more manageable. Nik has applied those skills, and now he can be found coaching on Monday nights. This has fostered his passion for helping others, and according to him there is nothing better than seeing his students apply the skills he teaches them to better themselves. Seeing others get excited about jiu jitsu as he shows them new things also helps cement the lessons and skills in his own mind. When he is not at the academy, Nik can be found camping, cooking, or playing video games, and he is always a great source for the best movie recommendations!
