My name is Jonny-rex Smith date of birth 27,1,2007.

I am a student at my bjj whangarei of brazilian jiu-jitsu.

I am extremely privileged to train at my bjj with professor "James Cherrie".

At this point of time being June 30th 2019, I hold 4 national titles, 3 of which are from new zealand grappler and 1 is from the nz martial art expo. Gold medal win from the king of the north, gold medal regionals, and gold medal from the river city sub comp in whanganui, 2 silver medals, and 2 bronze medals from other various competitions. My fighting record is 36 fights, 30 wins, 6 losses. ( These losses are what drives me to go back to the gym, and train my butt off, come back bigger better faster stronger and extremely determined). Over the last 2.5 year i have trained 8 hours a week.

My upcoming goals are.

I am going to the 2019 melbourne pan pacifics, in oct 25,26,27 for a taste of my first international competition.

The main goal!

2020 July world champs california is my life goal and we are financially planning for myself and my professor (James Cherrie of my bjj 273 port road whangarei). Our costs are going to be $10,000. This covers air flights accommodation medical insurances and gym training costs and tournament costs for the week we will be in california.
