Don Stoner is a proud second degree Black Belt student under Master Fabiano Scherner.

As a teen he was ranked as one of the top competitors in the nation and had a rivalry with Kayron Gracie (Son of Carlos Jr).

At age 20 he relocated to Texas with his coach to teach and compete fulltime.

After multiple NAGA Championship titles and Texas State Championship titles he moved back with his family and continued to teach at Rigan Machado’s Academy for the next 5 years.

In 2015 after competing in the black belt division as a brown belt under Rigans guidance he was promoted to Black belt at the age of 27.

At age 30 he moved to Washougal, WA with his wife Andrea to start their new life.

If I can help one child or adult to have a better life from jiu jitsu, I am a happy man. I created Lone Wolf to instill the individual power that jiu jitsu has given me to other, better the communities physical and mental health"
