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.
Building the new academy into what it is today. We changed ownership in August of 2020 during the pandemic. Basically building from 0 we now boast a 4000 sq ft facility and over 100 members!
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.
