Steven Salas was born and raised in San Antonio, Tx. He started his jiu jitsu journey with Josh as a white belt in 2009. Steven then began shadowing kids classes as a blue belt for school credit and began learning about the teaching process here at Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Steven started teaching officially for Josh as a purple belt after having shadowed for over 100 hours and after passing Relson's purple belt self defense test given by Josh. Steven continued to teach more and more classes at Relson Gracie JiuJitsu, both self defense and regular sport jiu jitsu classes as well as covering Jrs and Kids classes whenever needed. In June 2021, Steve was awarded his BlackBelt by Grandmaster Relson Gracie and Joshua Lauber after passing Relson's BlackBelt Self Defense test under Relson's supervision.
Steve brings his passion for jiu jitsu, martial arts, a healthy lifestyle, and a love for teaching to every class here at Relson Gracie San Antonio.
