Founder and Instructor
Scott Began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in early 2010. It peaked his interest as a possible way to “pick up” a few pointers from a different perspective for the Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling that he coached in his home town each Spring. He immediately learned that the upper belts at this school could gain an upper hand over him through angles and leverage. This drew Scott in as he wanted to dive deeper into this martial art. Soon he was attending class three days a week. In four months he had dropped 20 pounds and had a desire to eat a healthier diet.
Scott had stumbled across one of the best technical instructors out there. Scott Huston is highly regarded by many as one of the most technical instructors and top notch Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the region. His academy, 360 Brazlian Jiu-Jitsu, is recognized by some as the best in the state of Wisconsin.
Combining Scott Roffers’ experience with the instruction and training partners at 360 BJJ soon proved to be a powerful recipe for success. Scott has competed at local and international levels with great results. He has a passion for the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is excited to be able to educate people from all walks of life and ages in what is known as “the gentle art.” Through Silverback BJJ, Scott intends to help people by emphasizing the importance of a healthy mind and body that can be achieved through fitness and, what some call, the most effective martial art.
Scott’s professor, Scott Huston, had this to say about Scott: “Scott is one of my very best students and a good friend. He is a leader and inspiration for many of us both on and off the mat. Scott’s world class accolades in addition to his ability to teach and communicate with others have made him a standout. Whether you are hobbyist looking to self improve in a family friendly environment or if you want to become a world class competitor you will be in great hands!”
