Jackson's MMA New Location - US Combat Sports

Greg Jackson has perfected his Martial Arts curriculum over the past two decades. His methods can be seen in the success of dozens of elite fighters such as Jon Jones, Diego Sanchez and George St. Pierre just to name but a few. 

Now, anyone looking to learn Martial Arts for recreation, fitness or competition can train at Jackson’s new state-of-the-art gym at 2801 Eubank NE Suite P and earn belt rankings like other traditional martial arts.

Jackson’s staff is top notch starting with Coach Jackson himself. Travis Marx, a Bellator fighter with an 18-3 professional record, is the gym’s Program Director.  One of this season’s Ultimate Fighter winners and a Black Belt under Coach Jackson, Jon Dodson, teaches MMA classes along with Strikeforce fighter Isaac Vallie-flag.  

The other most recent Ultimate Fighter winner, Diego Brandao, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, is Jackson’s Gi Jiu-Jitsu Instructor.  Newly signed UFC fighter Buddy Roberts heads up the kids program and former Olympic wrestler Willie Parks is the gym’s wrestling instructor.   

Parents looking for a Martial Arts academy for their children can expect Kids classes that are structured like other Martial Arts offering the benefits of discipline, confidence and self-control while receiving expert instruction in Jackson’s proven curriculum.  Adult classes will be modeled after the training used by Jackson’s professional team involving grappling, striking and MMA instruction.  A full wall of hanging bags are available for cardio kickboxing classes or individual bag work.
