Head BJJ & Muay Thai Coach

After training in Martial Arts since the age of 10, Scott founded Fit Plus in 2003. Fit Plus Martial Arts was opened to provide Halifax and Dartmouth with the best training in muay thai, Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) and boxing possible. At the time, there were no facilities in the Maritimes offering everything needed to reach the top levels of MMA. As a result, Fit Plus Martial Arts was born.

Since then, Scott has travelled extensively and brought in some of the best trainers in the world to learn from. From Muay Thai Champions and Olympians to World Champion BJJ practitioners. He is committed to providing our members with the absolute best training available. The results speak for themselves.
