Photo Id Jason began his grappling career as a high school wrestler where he placed twice in the state tournament. After a brief break from training, he found Jiu-Jitsu in 2002 and was immediately hooked. He began training with Team ROC while at NC State working on his Bachelors in computer science. He began competing almost immediately and continues to compete today testing himself in the toughest tournaments. Jason began teaching Jiu-Jitsu towards the end of his blue belt, his knowledge and passion for the art have greatly increased since then as Jiu-Jitsu transitioned from an activity to a lifestyle for him. He has trained all over the country with many world class instructors, allowing him to combine a variety of styles into his game while staying true to the fundamentals of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. After moving to Colorado Jason joined the Relson Gracie team. With the help and instruction of Steve Hordinski taking his game to the next level, Jason earned his Brown Belt from Relson in January 2009 and then his Black Belt in March 2012. Jason is dedicated to improving his Jiu-Jitsu, and sharing his knowledge with others.
