Cory Knopp started training wrestling and grappling when he was just six years old, and has been hooked ever since.
In 2019, he joined the Zenith team and has enjoyed learning and developing his skills with them.
Cory’s approach is heavy pressure and high tempo; he loves to train with teammates who focus on the art and helping each other grow.
His favorite submission is the rear-naked choke.
When asked why he likes coaching?
‘Love working with the young kids, watching them develop. It’s fun to watch them go from just learning basic positions to executing a full technique. The self confidence they gain – and the smiles – are what makes it fun.‘
