Hello, my name is James Diehl and I am a 17 year old Jiu-Jitsu competitor and practitioner. I began my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey not so long ago at the age of 13, I quickly became fascinated with the art and took it on as my main sport/hobby. I look forward too bettering myself not just as a competitor but also as a person! I also have two very supportive parents and a wonderful little sister. I am a current student at Barry Goldwater High school and will be attending college to become a Physical Therapist.
