Allen is known for his extensive knowledge of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that he accumulated by giving up his life in Kansas and moving across the country to study exclusively with Master Pedro Sauer. Allen went on to be the Manager and head instructor of Master Sauer's school in Salt Lake City, Utah. After over ten years of living in Utah, Allen moved to Hattiesburg, Mississippi and opened Team Hopkins Jiu-Jitsu Association which is currently comprised of over 6 schools across the nation.
