Luis Rodriguez

Purple Belt, Coach

Coach Luis Rodriguez’s passion for martial arts ignited in 2012 when he embarked on his journey at Victory Martial Arts under the guidance of Adam Grisko and gym owner Dion Riccardo. With unwavering dedication, Luis immersed himself in the world of MMA, honing his skills and nurturing a deep love for the sport.

Throughout his years of training and coaching at Victory Martial Arts, Luis’s commitment and relentless pursuit of excellence never wavered. However, his path took an exciting turn when he enrolled at Eastern Illinois University, where he discovered the art of Gi training. Under the guidance of his close friend and first Gi coach, Jose Beccerra (a brown belt under Diego Bispo), Luis embraced the intricacies and technical aspects of Gi Jiu-Jitsu.

In 2020, armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience, Coach Luis made the bold decision to relocate to Colorado. Eager to continue his training and explore new horizons, he sought out 10th Planet Denver, where he had the privilege of training under the esteemed black belt, Conor Huen. During this time, Luis also seized the opportunity to refine his wrestling skills and further develop his Gi prowess under the guidance of TJ Steinbach, a two-time USA grappling member and BJJ national champion.

Eventually, Coach Luis found his true home at 10th Planet Parker, where he was welcomed into the fold by Professor Niko Radich. Recognizing his dedication and commitment, Professor Radich awarded Luis with a well-deserved purple belt, cementing his place as an integral part of the 10th Planet Parker family.
