Skye MiddletonHead Instructor

Introduced to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for the first time in 2007 while living in his native city of Cape Town, South Africa, Skye instantly fell in love with everything Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. After a little over a year of intense training, he received his official Blue Belt from the Gracie Academy. In 2010 Skye left Cape Town and immigrated to California, USA, where he continued training Gracie Combatives and Master Cycle based out of the certified training center Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Solana Beach as well as running a successful Gracie Garage. He continued his training along with private lessons and seminar visits to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu world headquarters in Torrance, CA. In July 2014 Skye was promoted to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt.

Skye is passionate about sharing, teaching and empowering people and is also a Certified Personal Trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) focusing mainly on nutrition and functional training – a perfect compliment to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

Living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Skye owns and operates Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Milwaukee where he teaches the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the exacting standards of the Gracie family. If you had to describe Skye and his Gracie Jiu-Jitsu teaching style in 3 words they would be: Passionate, Humble & Empowering!
