Coach Jordan – BJJ

In September 2015, Owner and Head BJJ Coach Jordan Lutsky opened The Jiu Jitsu Mill with the mission to inspire and facilitate the full potential of anyone willing to step on the mat. With roughly 11 years’ experience training and competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the time, he understood the unique power BJJ has to change the way people see the world, approach problems, deal with stress, achieve their goals and overcome obstacles. He saw firsthand the power BJJ has to make each and every person a better version of themselves, on and off the mat, and decided to open the Jiu Jitsu Mill as the home base from where he could make this vision a reality.

Jordan began his training in 2006 while a senior at the University of Vermont out of a gritty inter-mural club taught by a then Roberto Maia brown belt, Chris Owen. After Graduating ‘07, Jordan continued his training for the next seven years in evenings and weekends under Jomari “JoJo” Guarin (founder of team ECUBJJ and black belt under UFC and ADCC veteran Sean Alvarez of the Gracie Barra lineage under Nelson Monteiro) while working full time at AQR Capital. Under JoJo, Jordan received his black belt (3/28/2015).

In 2013, due to logistical changes, Jordan, under the auspices of JoJo, began training with team Soul Fighters co-founder Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa. In December, 2015, Jordan was invited by Formiga to represent team Soul Fighters, renowned for multiple world championships in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and a rapidly growing with a network across the globe. With JoJo’s blessing, Jordan accepted. Jordan continues his training with and under Formiga as an integral member and active competitor of Team Soul Fighters.

“Regrets, I have a few, but then again, too few to mention…” Not having quit his full time day job until the age of 30 to open his academy, Coach Jordan regrets never having had the ability to train full time as an adult competitor. BUT, he takes great pride in his dedication to his students, his passion for the sport, his unique ability to efficiently and effectively communicate the principles and techniques of Jiu Jitsu to anyone, as well as his continued success in the competition circuit at the Master 1 level (IBJJF).
When Jordan is not teaching or training, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two girls and working on his bike (’07 HSQV TE252).

Carlos Nunez – Striking

Carlos Nunez was born in the town of Macas Ecuador in 1983. At the age of 11, he Immigrated to Port Chester, NY. At 24 Carlos was taken as a student of Viwat Sakulrat, whose tutelage he trained under for the next year and to who Carlos credits the majority of his technical development.

In 2009 Carlos obtained a job teaching children kickboxing at C3 in Stamford. There he remained, training and teaching for three years until traveling to Thailand for the first time. He would train for the following three months at Sinbi in Phuket, winning his first fight at a local Thai stadium. After returning home, Carlos spent the better part of three years fighting on the local circuit, racking up 20 fights on his own, but never under the instruction of a dedicated coach.

In 2012, Carlos trained with Coban Lockchaomaesaitong for about one year until he was offered a job to replace Viwat (above), who was leaving for Thailand, as the head Thai Coach at UFC Stamford and Mamaroneck. Overwhelmed and unable to train himself, Carlos would, in 2015, leave to form his own team out of a space he would sub-let at Champs boxing in New Rochelle.

Recalling Carlos back in 2015 as the coach to many fighters at a cage ticket where Coach Jordan was fighting, Coach Jordan reached out to Carlos in August 2016 and asked Carlos if he would be the director of the Thai program at The Jiu Jitsu Mill. Eager to inspire and help his local community, Carlos accepted. In June of 2017, while employed at theJiuJitsuMill, Carlos went back to Thailand and reunited with his original coach, Viwat, under who he trained, fought, and won, before returning to The Jiu-Jitsu mill a month later.
