Gene Byard has been practicing the art of Muay Thai since 2007. He started his training at Revolution BJJ’s sister school Richmond Brazillian Jiu Jitsu under the instruction of Eric Burdo and Acie Bryan. He joined the staff of Revolution BJJ in 2012.
With personal fight experience and the experience of numerous training camps behind him, Gene loves the challenge of turning new students into lifelong students of the art.
His style is a blend of Dutch-style Thai Boxing and strength and conditioning which builds well rounded students who are always prepared for the ring or just the gym.
In addition to being a blue belt in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, Gene is a father of two and a media producer with a B.A. in Mass Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University.
