He trained off and on between deployments under Professor Aurelio Gallegos at Paragon BJJ Corpus Christi, Tx (now Pressa BJJ) until 2009.

He joined McMahon BJJ in Fort Collins, CO (now McMahon Training Center) and by the end of 2010 he was promoted to Blue Belt under Professor Finnie and Tessa McMahon. In 2012 Arnaud had to take roughly a year and a half off from training due to neck surgery, but he later got back into training at Cheyenne BJJ and by October 2018 was promoted to Purple Belt by Professor Justin Jacobs.
