Seph Smith

Seph Smith has been training martial arts since February 2001. Originally from Richmond, Seph moved away from the city in 2005 to pursue jiu jitsu at a higher level. In 2008, he joined his coach Ryan Hall at Hall’s new gym, Fifty/50, in Northern Virginia, where Seph worked as the assistant head instructor. Seph was the first person to receive a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from Ryan Hall. In 2015, Seph returned to his hometown to pursue his career-long dream of opening a gym in Richmond. An accomplished competitor at the local, regional, and national level with considerable tournament experience in jiu jitsu and submission grappling, Seph has also competed successfully in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) where he held a regional title belt in the WKA organization. Seph is a 2011 IBJJF Pan American Silver Medalist (brown belt Masters 1 division) and a NAGA Superfight Champion in addition to many, many titles at the Advanced No-Gi level in regional tournaments. In the past few years, he has been highly successful in the local circuit.

More than just a competitor, Seph brings with him to Upstream BJJ Academy extensive experience and knowledge of coaching, personal training, and curriculum design. He has trained with some of the top practitioners in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, constantly seeking out new information and techniques to incorporate into his game and share with his students. Seph specializes in fostering a friendly environment based on positive reinforcement and promoting a strong work ethic that is welcoming to people of all athletic backgrounds.
