Jeremy Jackson Biography
Jeremy Jackson was born on February 11, 1987, in Visalia, California, where he grew up.
Interested in sporting activities from a young age, Jackson joined in his first football team at the age of 8, playing up until his freshman year of high school. Although small for his age (5’1″ and 120 lbs) Jeremy made his high school’s basketball team the following year (sophomore), playing throughout his Junior year.
After leaving his sporting life behind to pursue a professional career in internet marketing, Jeremy found himself gaining weight. He eventually decided to make a return to his healthy shape, ordering Tony Horton’s P90X, a 90-day fitness challenge, at the end of which he had lost 19 pounds. The experience had more positive results than those he had imagined when he started the process, as Jeremy truly enjoyed the thrill of the challenge and the mindset it provided.
Deciding to continue testing his limits, Jeremy started looking for the next challenge. Right around that time he drove by a jiu-jitsu gym and chose to stop, walk in and do a trial class, almost immediately falling in love with the martial art.
That first gym Jeremy joined was Alberto Crane’s Legacy gym in Burbank, California. An academy where he earned his blue belt. Jackson would later move closer to the San Francisco, then becoming a team member of Heroes Martial Arts, under the instruction of the famed Alan “Gumby” Marques. It was with Gumby’s team that Jeremy started gaining international notoriety as a competitor – all while running his own successful online business.
As a brown belt, while looking to find the best training possible to help him find success at the highest level in the sport/martial art, Jeremy Jackson opted to joint CTA in San Jose, California. There he had a chance to train directly with one of his idols – Caio Terra, and his internationally renowned team of athletes. It was under Terra that Jackson earned his black belt on July 2019 in a ceremony led by both Terra and Marques.
