Peter began his training in martial arts with Aikido and after spending 10 years training that art, he had the opportunity to try other arts such as Eskrima, Boxing, Judo and Brazilian Jiujitsu while living in Hawai‘i. As a jiujitsu practitioner, he draws inspiration from all martial arts in his grappling, particularly Wrestling and Judo. He believes in training people to be good teammates while also having a goal of producing competitive athletes. Besides training martial arts, Peter also enjoys running, swimming and assembling Lego. During his day off, Peter can be found participating in other classes at Team Armada and he can often be found having impromptu rolls on the spare mat.
