Chris Jones

Professor Chris Jones began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu directly under Master Charles Gracie, at the age of 15, and earned his black belt eight years later. Shortly after starting his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey, Professor Chris Jones would assist and coach under Master Charles Gracie as well. At an age where most teenagers are devoted to studies and socializing, Professor Chris Jones chose to focus on building his craft through Jiu-Jitsu. After his teenage years, Professor Chris Jones continues to perfect his Jiu-Jitsu through coaching and training. It is his passion, love for his Jiu-Jitsu family, and a relentless demand to learn and grow that drives him as an instructor and student. As a 1st degree black belt, Professor Chris Jones has the experience and knowledge to help you reach your full potential. 


At Charles Gracie Fremont, our top priority is safety. We provide a safe and clean environment for our students to learn and progress during their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey.  Our head instructor has devoted his whole life to the art, and wants to share it to anyone who is willing to improve and better their lives through self-defense.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling martial art, there are no strikes involved. Instead, students will learn how to control an opponent and choke/joint lock if necessary. Students will learn how to stay safe in a hostile situation, and what to do if they find themselves on the ground in such a situation.

As a student of Charles Gracie Fremont you can expect to learn and develop life-saving self-defense skills. In addition you will see your self-confidence rise, your physical fitness and overall health improve.

We recommend at least twice a week.  But above all else consistency is key to progressing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The road won’t be easy but it will be worth it. Always remember where  you are starting from, how far you’ve come and how far you have left to go. Listen to your body and rest if necessary, but keep hammering away.
