Tanner Vander Velden - Kids Grappling Coach

Tanner was born in Appleton and moved to Milwaukee in 2010, where he began training jiu-jitsu.

He has a Bachelors in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which he earned while working at non profits like the Boys and Girls Club and COA Youth and Family Centers. 

As an educator, my goal is to be the person I wish I had when I was younger. As a coach, my goal is to help people realize that they're capable of becoming who they want to.
