Eric Loar


Eric is a Native Speaker of American English. He is a visiting black belt guest coach at Kazakhstan Top Team in Astana.

He has 12+ years of coaching youth (ages 4/5, 6-8, 9-12, 13+) in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu back home in Portland, OR. His years of experience in coaching provide a unique opportunity for the students at Atlas to practice their English conversation skills from sportsman’s mindset perspective.

With 18+ years of practicing Jiu Jitsu he has dealt with failures, setbacks, and struggles. Learning from these obstacles gave him the encouragement to persevere and succeed in attaining his black belt.

In his free time, you can catch him walking with his dog on the Ishim and surrounding park areas.
