Brendan Bane is Kaijin’s photographer, videographer and social media manager. He began his jiu jitsu journey in 2014 after moving to Santa Cruz to pursue a career in science communication. Brendan adores jiu jitsu for the many principles it shares with science: commitment to truth, progress through criticism, and learning by tinkering. You’ll likely catch Brendan filming our classes and competitions, or rolling in one of our many American Jiu Jitsu classes. Belt: purple. Favorite submission: kimura from everywhere.
