Coach Rohan Patel, Taylor Biagi Jiu Jitsu Chicago IL

Coach Rohan Patel

Rohan Patel is Co-Owner and an Instructor at Taylor Biagi Jiu Jitsu. He is also an avid competitor with many titles, including a World’s Gold Medal in the sport Rohan teaches many of the classes at Taylor Biagi Jiu Jitsu as well as runs competition sparring.

A letter from Coach Rohan:

I feel super grateful to have found Jiu Jitsu. 10 years ago I was a band geek with almost no athletic prowess. Talking to girls was a struggle, fitting in with groups of friends didn’t feel right, and I wasn’t comfortable with who I was without a guitar in my hand.

I was seeking a way to reinvent myself. Ogled by the courage of MMA fighters, I began to tune into every episode of “The Ultimate Fighter” show. Without any training under my belt, it was the courage they demonstrated with their actions that spoke to something very human in me. To put oneself in the cage, left with only the skills you’ve developed- it reminded of a high stakes open mic night. I wanted to develop courage like that.

After discovering that Jiu Jitsu is a cornerstone of MMA, as well as Jiu Jitsu doesn’t involve getting punched, kicked, elbowed, or kneed in the head, I signed up for my first class.

I loved the process of learning moves, and then getting to practice them in sparring. In music and Jiu Jitsu, practice makes perfect! I trusted this notion and committed myself to training every day.

After 10 years of training and competing, the confidence that I sought as a young boy is starting to feel like normal. I’m happy with who I am, the friendships I’ve made, and the students I’m now helping on their journey. Fighting for the titles Taylor and I earned were a huge accomplishment for us individually, but the community we’ve fostered in our academy is the greatest joy Jiu Jitsu has brought to my life.

I hope to inspire people with Jiu Jitsu the same way my coaches did for me. Can’t wait for you to join us and begin your journey!”
