Michael Spallholtz

– Jiu Jitsu Instructor

After competing in various sports throughout my life and spending four years in the United States Marine Corps, I stumbled upon Brazilian Jiu Jitsu being taught at a local weight lifting gym’s racquet ball court. Right away I was hooked on the sport and began my never ending journey in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Once I earned my blue belt I approached my professor and told him I would like my focus to be on learning how to teach. From that point on I trained to teach and my goal was to teach BJJ for a living.

Since the start of my journey, I have been lucky enough to train with some of the best grapplers in the world, such as Pablo Popvitch, Michelle Nicolini, and Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida, and Randy Couture. I have also been lucky enough to help start two young and upcoming stars Jake and Adam Ferrara. I consider myself to be truly blessed to have had these opportunities and train with so many great competitors.

My approach to teaching is a simple one: train hard, be respectful, and have fun!

Coach Jason was born and raised in Nebraska. He always had an athletic streak that led him to martial arts, basketball, football, and wrestling. Being that he grew up with his grandparents he is very devoted to his Laotian roots and culture. His grandfather introduced him to kicks and teeps at the age of 8. Since then, Muay Thai has always been an interest and influence in his fight career.

Coach Jason loves introducing martial arts to those willing to learn and has a passion to help others become better versions of themselves.

“Every mans heart one day beats it’s final beat, his lungs take their final breath, and if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the bodies of others, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by story tellers, by the loyalty and memory of those who honor him.”  –     The Ultimate Warrior
