Coach Tyler Ebert

NAIA National Championship

Born and raised in the St. Louis area. I played the typical Midwest childhood sports of Baseball and Soccer. Excelled as the aggressor on the soccer field in the mid-field during my years as a teenager. As entering High School at Ft. Zumwalt West, I discovered my niche with competitive Swimming and Waterpolo. With the amazing comradery of teammates and Coaches on both Aquatic teams, it felt like I had a family outside of my own immediate family.

After high school moved on to collegiate Water Polo, and I was a part of the Lindenwood University Water Polo team that won the NAIA National Championship in 2006. In 2012 was the year I discovered Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Under the guidance of Professor Mike Buckels and his coaches and with the amazing comradery of my teammates, I was able to win my first gold in my first tournament in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the IBJJF Chicago Open 2012. Over the past five years I’ve been on the medal podium multiple times in multiple tournaments.

Then over the past year I’ve been helping coach and teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu up at Gracie Barra O’Fallon under Professor Mike Buckels and Professor Steve Moellering. Once again I have found my niche in coaching and helping Students in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and grappling arts.
