Jack Coyston is a Brazilian jiujitsu brown belt. Originally born and raised in England he moved to sunny California with his family in 2001. Shortly after moving to America Jack was introduced to the sport of wrestling and instantly fell in love. After wrestling eighth grade through high school and helping coach the middle school team while in high school, Jack knew that he wanted grappling and coaching to always be a part of his life.
After high school, Jack began to train Judo while continuing to help coach the middle school and high school wrestling teams. Judo was his first introduction to submissions outside of watching MMA and he was hooked instantly. Wrestling taught Jack how to control another person and put them where he wanted them to be, and Judo began to teach him how to finish them once he got them there. Judo was also his first introduction to wearing a Gi and although at first it was suffocating and overwhelming, Jack quickly recognized the value in it and wanted to do more. He trained Judo for three years and then in 2012 he tried jiujitsu for the first time. From his first class, Jack felt like he had found a home that blended everything he already loved. Stand up, judo throws, wrestling takedowns, submissions, gi and no gi. Jiujitsu had everything he wanted. He was hooked and from that day forward he dedicated himself to BJJ and the pursuit, which he's still on, of one day attaining the skills that would earn him his black belt.
Coach Jack is known for his armbars, over attention to detail, and ability to talk for hours on end about Jiujitsu. His goals are to one day be awarded his black belt in BJJ, and also to go back and earn his black belt in Judo as well. He also has plans to continue competing and wants to see how far he can go. Above all else, Coach Jack wants to continue trying to obtain as much grappling knowledge as possible so that he can continue to share it with anyone that wants to learn. He just wants to be the best instructor he can be and enjoys nothing more than seeing a student grow as a person, athlete, and martial artist.
Coach Jack teaches Mon, Wed, and Fri evening advanced adults class at 630p.
