Coach Hougland has been at this game for 13 years now. Beginning with an amature career in Muay Thai Kick boxing and advancing his skills in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He started training with Coach Paul Mendoza at Dynamic Martial Arts & Fitness in Modesto, CA. It was there he began working with a solid camp, having great managment and instruction, earning his Blue Belt under Ralph Gracie. In 2006 he moved to WA taking some time off of fighting to find a good BJJ school, (Foster Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) Training with James for a couple years he decided to become an affiliate and open his own academy.
Combat Sport & Fitness was established in 2008. Over the past 4 years we have out-grown 2 locations and have settled in to a space with 2000 sq ft. of zebra mats, a cardio and conditioning area, yoga studio, men's/woman's locker room and plenty of opportunity to grow. Coach Hougland is the Owner and coach which means he teaches all the classes offered with the exception of wrestling. He prides himself on his very well rounded team of kids and adults who compete on a regular basis in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well as boxing, kick boxing and MMA events. We have several pros and amatures that fight regularly on the North West MMA circuit as well as 30-50 BJJ students competing in local grappling tournaments. With a solid camp and a reputation that speaks for itself theres no better place to train.
Jeff most recently signed with the UFC and is fighting in the bantamweight division. He holds a blackbelt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is excited to continue to grow as a mixed martial artist and hopes to inspire his students, young and not so young to push themselves and dream beyond your limits! Hard work always prevails and he and his story are a testament to that.
