About Impact Hood River

Impact Hood River Our History

Our History

Impact Jiu Jitsu’s beginnings stem from Japan where in 1991, founder Michael Chapman studied “Shooto” or Shoot Fighting. When Michael returned to Oregon in 1993, he brought with him a passion for ground fighting. At the time, there was little known locally about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Michael pulled together training partners and they began to learn what they could through books, videos, and seminars with Brazilian Black Belts such as Rickson Gracie and Rigan Machado.

Impact Hood River A word from Coach Ryan Brock

A word from Coach Ryan Brock

Jiu Jitsu has made me into the man I am today. I was a punk teenager when I started training, and through jiu jitsu, and awesome coaches, I have developed a sense of confidence and ability to face adversity that I never thought was possible. My physical and mental abilities have increased dramatically through my training. Knowing this is what made me want to provide a place where others can experience a similar type of growth.
