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 practiced 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 in 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 in June 2016.
