Esteem Jiujitsu was founded in 2010 by Michael Stratton, a BJJ black belt under Megaton Dias. Michael’s been on the mats since 1993 when he joined the JH wrestling team and fell in love with the art of grappling. He participated in folk-style, freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling from age 12 - 18. After high school, Michael gravitated towards MMA and no gi BJJ. He won the only two MMA fights he did in 2007 and 2008 before he decided that he was happier as an instructor. In 2010, with the support of his wife, Rosie, he finally opened Esteem Jiujitsu.
