Jamil Hill-Taylor Biography

Shane Jamil Hill-Taylor was born on December 8, 1995 in Suitland, Maryland – United States of America.

Growing up very connected with sports, Shane played football and practised taekwondo in his early childhood. Jiu jitsu crossed Jamil’s path at the age of 8, when he was convinced by a few friends to join Team Lloyd Irvin’s (TLI) Summer camp. The experience greatly enhanced his interest for grappling as he explained:

During my first week of camp I was told to pass one of the grappling kids guard, and for 5 minutes I tried to run around the legs with no success. From that moment on I wanted to train and at the end of the Summer I was put into the grappling program. – Shane Hill-Taylor

At TLI’s jiu jitsu kids program Shane met Donald Achnick (also known as “Master Donnie”). Achnick became a strong influence in Hill-Taylor’s development as a BJJ athlete, following Jamil’s evolution throughout all belts.

Shane Hill-Taylor first started competing in 2005, immediately falling in love with the tournament aspect of this martial art/sport. His interest expanded further once Shane witnessed (from the sidelines) his first IBJJF World Championship back in 2009. He decided then he wanted to pursue a career as a professional grappler, competing the following year in the sport’s most important tournament, placing second in the blue belt juvenile division.

Shane’s jiu jitsu skills showed potential for greatness from early on, pilling important titles to his vast grappling resume, including 3 world titles and 2 pan american titles in the lower belt divisions. Trophies that led Hill-Taylor to his black belt, a promotion that occurred on June 2016.
