Guest Instructors at Fenix Highlanders Club
From time to time Coach Shawn will host a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or yoga clinic with a guest instructor. This list will continue to grow over time but we are fortunate to have the following instructors visit and share their knowledge at our Littleton, NH BJJ school.
Greg Cinelli- BJJ
Greg is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelt and multiple time gold medal champion at the IBJFF, Pan American and World Masters Championships. With close to a decade worth of experience to the “gentle art”, Greg is a wealth of knowledge and an honor to host at our school. In addition to his time on the mat he is also an advocate for veterans off the mat, as an ambassador for the We Defy Foundation and Gis 4 GIs.

Chris began training to learn how to better defend himself while on duty and was instantly hooked. Chris began coaching as a purple belt in 2012. When time allows Coach Chris also enjoys competing. In his 16 plus years of training, Chris has been a multi-time Boston Open and Grappling Industries Champion and Medalist.
