If you haven’t heard, Atos Black Belt Jonathan ‘JT’ Torres has moved back to the East Coast to open an academy of his own.


JT – AKA “The Spiderman” – moved to San Diego and joined our team in 2013 and has since added multiple titles to his already extensive list of accolades. Apart from training everyday as an integral part of the Atos competition team, JT was also the head instructor of the Kids 8-14 program.

In August of 2016 JT and his family traveled across the country back to his home state of New York.





Though he is missed here at Atos HQ, we are tremendously proud of his progress and happy to have him flying the Atos flag on the East Coast.


JT’s school, Essential BJJ, will be located in Hartsdsale, NY in the Westchester county. Be sure to follow JT and Essential BJJ on Facebook and Instagram (@jtorresbjj & @essentialbjj) for more news and information!
