Dusty Hjelle is a purple belt under Rob Biernacki and has been training and competing in JiuJitsu for over 12 years. Dusty first learned JiuJitsu for MMA, but after sometime, realized that his true passion was for the art and sport of grappling.
Over the last couple of years, that passion has grown past just learning and competing, but to teach and grow the art in the greater Twin Ports area.
Dusty is passionate about JiuJitsu not just as an art, but as a means to a community where you can find belonging, develop skills and gain confidence for life. It’s Dusty’s mission to teach JiuJitsu through a science based approach of understanding “base, posture, structure”, or as his coach Rob calls it, the, “alignment theory.”
