However, what I didn’t know back then was that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was far more than just the most effective and most efficient combat sport on the planet, it was also and foremost a martial art. A martial art that taught me through the years how to constantly improve myself, how to run my business, how to raise my children and simply how to be a good person. To me like to other millions of people around the planet, Jiu-Jitsu is right up there: among the best things that ever happened to me. Come and see for yourself!”

Jamison

Jamison Wong

In 2006 he was introduced to Jiu-Jitsu at the Gracie Academy in Torrence, California. After just one class, he observed how the "little guy" with Jiu-Jitsu could defend themselves against bigger opponents, and Jamie became fascinated with the Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle.

In September 2006 Jamie competed in his first submission-only tournament, winning his weight division. However, career would cause him to start commuting between Los Angeles, NYC, and Shanghai. With this new found passion for Jiu-Jitsu, Jamie found places to train whenever he was traveling: 5-Star martial arts (Shawn Williams) in Los Angeles, Renzo Gracie Academy in NYC, and SHBJJ in Shanghai. The myriad of academies has allowed Jamie to develop a deep and technical style of Jiu-Jitsu, which he continues to bring to the mats every day.
