Coach Zolkavich

Coach Dillon Zolkavich started his martial arts journey at YMATC in 2016. He wanted to learn Kickboxing and BJJ to increase his martial knowledge and self defense. He started assisting the Youth BJJ class in 2017 and took over instructing it in 2019. He discovered that teaching helped his own BJJ knowledge and techniques. He enjoys being an instructor and helping others improve and grow in their journey. Outside of martial arts he enjoys gardening, woodworking, carving, history and working on his side business WARCRY. Coach Dillon has acquired 543 Main Street in Melville to expand his teachings and affiliate Warcry Martial Arts with YMATC!
