    About Todd Williams: Todd qualified for two Olympic Games 1992-1996 in the 10k and won twenty one US titles on the road, track and cross country course. His talent and hard work gave him the opportunity to compete all over the world against the best. After retiring from the professional running stage Todd decided to challenge himself in the world of Martial Arts. He chose Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because he was told it was a very challenging, goal oriented art and would keep him very strong and fit. Well eight years later and countless hours studying and training Todd received his black belt in Jiu Jitsu.
