At the age of 15, Ryan was introduced to Jiu Jitsu. Three people had a profound impact on Gordon’s Jiu Jitsu education. Ryan’s tutelage started under the incomparable Tom DeBlass in New Jersey. Tom is renowned for his grappling abilities, high level mixed martial arts competition and teaching abilities. Garry Tonon also played an important impact on Ryan. Tonon was a brown belt of DeBlass at the time. Alongside Tom, Tonon played a key impact in Ryan’s instruction. Tonon is a legendary grappler with wins at EBI, Polaris, Metamoris and many other high level tournaments. Garry also influenced Gordon to train with another one of his instructors, the legendary John Danaher. Danaher has coached former UFC Champions George St. Pierre and Chris Weidman. He also has been responsible for the education of many renowned grapplers. After 6 months as a brown belt and victories at IBJJF World No-Gi Champion and Newaza Challenge Champion Ryan was awarded his black belt by Garry Tonon. Tom DeBlass, John Danaher, and Ricardo Almeida all supported the promotion.
Ryan’s grappling accomplishments are nothing short of spectacular. He won the IBJJF Nogi World Championship at Brown Belt. In 2016, Ryan defeated Yuri Simoes and Rustam Chsiev to win the Eddie Bravo Invitational Championship. Gordon’s next notable accomplishment was a super fight with Keenan Cornelius. In this no time limit submission only event, Gordon tapped Keenan with a heel hook. In 2017 Ryan competed in the ADCC World Championship. He claimed gold in the -88kg weight category by defeating Dillon Danis, Romulo Barral, Xande Ribeiro and Keenan Cornelius. He placed 2nd in the absolute division. He submitted all of his opponents but lost to Felipe Pena in the final. In 2018, Gordon won gold in his weight class and the absolute division and the IBJJF Pan Nogi. He also took gold at the No Gi Worlds in his weight class and the absolute division. Ryan led Team Alpha Male's to a victory in Quintet's 2018 Tournament where he had submission victories over Josh Barnett, Marcos Souza, Craig Jones and Vitor Ribeiro. Ryan’s other accomplishments include an unprecedented four time EBI Champion and Grappling Industries Champion.
Gordon is also an exception teacher. His guard passing instructional video promises to be one of the bestselling videos of all time. Danaher has also given him high praise saying, “Gordon Ryan is much more than an incredible athlete - he is one of the best teachers I have seen - people will be amazed when they see this video”.
Recently Gordon posted the following on his social media, “Woke up at 930 to leave my place at 1030 to get to Renzo's at 1115. Taught a private from 1130 to 1230. Took johns class and trained until 215. At 230 I then drilled MMA and sparred 3 rounds. Immediately after showered and taught a private 330 to 430 and another 430-530/6. Took a shower again and got a train at 7 to meet @kycerm at 8 in long island. Did an hour straight of hard wrestling no break with him and @greghodulick. Now eating dinner at 10 PM. Like I said. You have 2 choices in life. Either sit around and complain/feel sorry for yourself or you can get out of bed and make something of yourself. Every day I choose the latter. The world doesn't care whether or not you succeed or fail. No matter what the circumstances are it falls on you to be different than everyone else.”
Wow. What a work ethic! Ryan is an excellent example of talent meeting hart work. Certainly Gordon is an inspiration to anyone looking to improve their Jiu Jitsu or life. The Jiu Jitsu community is lucky to have him.
