Professor JD Shelley

jd shelleyProfessor JD Shelley, Owner and Chief Instructor, is an extremely functional martial arts and tactical instructor. His skills are well known throughout the world, as his ability to incorporate effective self-defense techniques from several disciplines at once (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Wrestling, Jeet Kune Do concepts, Muay Thai, weapons) is practically unmatched.

I've studied and trained in the martial arts for over two decades. Continual improvement of my own skills is a way of life for me. Through this, I obtain the latest training techniques and knowledge to guide my students to their full potential and self-awareness. --Professor JD Shelley (2x IBJJF World No-Gi Champion 2008 & 2010, 2x IBJJF Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championships Bronze medalist 2006 & 2012)
