JAKE VANCE

JAKE VANCE
Coach Jake first stepped onto the mat at JG MMA on July 23, 2006. He had been a fan of bjj for years before his good friend convinced him to try it. It was love at first strangulation. Many years and many chokes later, Coach Jake is now a team SAS black belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu under professor Jorge Gurgel. Although he is one of our biggest team members in size, he never learned to roll as such. He focused instead on movement,trickery, and deception. He is known for his love of the gi and his hatred of point fighting
