Skin to Bone is a source of information for my sports medicine patients and is dedicated to BJJ players. I’m a board certified Family Medicine and Sports Medicine Physician and graduated from UCLA medical school. This website is designed to give you one of a kind medical information for the grappling, MMA and BJJ community. We train hard and at some point we sustain an injury and the information at Skin To Bone is what you need to get back on the mat. Your next step is to sign up for the Skin To Bone Newsletter.
What am I doing when I’m not training at JJF or helping people get better at JJF? I’m hanging out with my family and taking care of my kids, trying to get in the water and surf or teaching Sports Medicine through the Southwest Sports Wellness Foundation. I’ve been working with SWSWF since I was a sports fellow at UCSD (5 years ago already!!) and I enjoy teaching Family Medicine Residents, Doctor of Physical Therapy students, Athletic Training students and the High School Athletes. Since I see high school athletes from the Sweetwater school district which is one of the largest in California, I have been able to diagnose and treat numerous common and complex musculoskeletal injuries on a regular basis. The injury clinics are all free to the High School Athletes.
