bossman (and lady)
Brad Garrick was born and raised in North Platte, Nebraska. By day, he writes software at the hospital. By night, he's the head honcho at Top Tier. He's had 17 years of MMA experience, 26 years of Jiu Jitsu experience, and has a black belt in Taekwondo. He now focuses on coaching others to reach their goals and enjoys helping others achieve things they never believed possible.
Brad's wife Emily is a videographer, adjunct Graphic Design instructor, and takes care of the baby Garrick while managing the gym's day-to-day operations. She initially got involved at the gym because Brad spent so much time there, but she now loves training too. Jiu Jitsu is her favorite discipline (probably because Brad teaches it!)
Coach JJ Connelly heads up our boxing program at Top Tier. A state trooper by day, he provides a unique perspective on self defense and fitness. Oh, and the kids absolutely love him.
We truly enjoy having Dan Morash and his family on staff with us. His dedication to the heart and soul of martial arts is inspiring. He does a great job teaching anyone - from the very beginner to the advanced.
Taekwondo instructor Travis Baker is the epitome of a family man. He, his wife, and their three kids have been a great asset to the Top Tier community and always bring an upbeat, fun vibe with them everywhere they go.
