Cory Burton | Brown Belt

Cory runs our student intake process and assists in teaching both kids and adults BJJ classes. He has been part of Island Top Team since the beginning and brings an immense passion for sharing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with every person that walks through our doors. In 2024, Cory coached the kids’ team to a perfect day at the South Island Open Youth Jiu-Jitsu Tournament. Our 6 athletes won over 20 matches, losing none, with none of them giving up even a single point against them. All the kids took gold or double gold, and the vast majority of the wins were via submission. This is an incredibly rare accomplishment and reflects the incredible work he has done coaching our young athletes.
