Clem (for short) started training while stationed in Japan in 2009. After a few stops/starts, he (thanks to his wife Samantha Fernandez) finally made the right decision to train consistently in 2015 while stationed in Phoenix, AZ. Here he earned his blue and purple belt from One Jiu Jitsu black belt, Andrew Gardineer. He now trains in NOVA under Garret Beck and Tad Merryman at Alpha Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, an Abmar Barbosa Affiliate. His wife Samantha Fernandez is a blue belt and son Cinco is a white belt. His daughter Maia has a white belt pending (she’s a little too young to start training).
