Sean Diviney is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt (IBJJF Approved) and has been training since 1999. He grew up in Northern Virginia and now lives in Washington, DC.

Sean’s classes have a strong focus on theory, submission details, and positional sparring. He insists that his students understand why techniques and strategies work in addition to being able to perform them against resisting opponents. Despite being strict on technique, Sean’s classes tend to be less formal and students are encouraged to ask questions and share their own insights.

When not in the DC area, Sean can be found at Burning Man where he runs the Black Rock City Jiu-Jitsu Club.
