Welcome Rob Rodriguez (no, not that one), new wrestling coach

Some of you may have noticed “the new guy” running class at the gym on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Then again, as a 10th Planet purple belt, Rob Rodriguez may be a very familiar face.

Rob joined the Legends’ training staff and, as of last week, has taken over the Tuesday and Thursday 6:30-7:30 wrestling classes.

Originally from Wisconsin, Rob started wrestling when he was seven and competed all the way through college. He wrestled at 184 lbs. for University of Wisconsin at La Crosse, where he achieved All-American honors twice at the FILA Greco-Roman national championships. Repping 10th Planet, Rob’s won several national jiu jitsu tournaments. Last year, he placed second in Mens’ No Gi Advanced (under 200 lbs.) at the June Grapplers’ Quest tournament, which took place at the UFC Fan Expo in Las Vegas.

Check out his class. All levels are welcome!
