Amad Jones

Amad has been training in martial arts since June 2009. Initially motivated by wanting to learn a martial arts skill and stay in shape, Amad began taking No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) at a friend’s mixed martial arts gym at Frederick Fight Club (FFC) in Frederick, MD, in 2009 and was immediately hooked when he found himself being controlled and constantly submitted by a sixteen-year-old kid who was 70 pounds lighter and much weaker than him. At that point, he knew there must be something special about Jiu-Jitsu and had to learn it. Amad has trained in jiu-jitsu consistently ever since. In August 2010, he started incorporating Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu into his training. Amad has competed in various grappling/BJJ tournaments since 2010 and enjoys the nuisances of adapting on the fly to an opponent’s unknown skills. Although he has trained in other martial arts such as Muay Thai, Lethwei, Judo, Wrestling, and Mixed Martial Arts, including Krav Maga, Amad dedicates most of his time to the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Martial Art. Amad was promoted to Blue Belt and Purple Belt in BJJ in June 2010 and June 2013, respectively, from Professor Vicente Junior (3rd Degree BJJ Black Belt) Affiliate Academy. Also, Amad was promoted to Brown Belt and Black Belt in December 2017 and June 2021, respectively, while at a Master Pedro Sauer (8th Degree BJJ Red & Black Belt) Affiliate Academy. Due to his dedication and knowledge of the various systems of Jiu-Jitsu, Amad was able to join the instructor’s team at the Mount Airy Jiu-Jitsu & MMA (The Mount) Academy as one of the instructors for the Kid’s and Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Programs.

Amad is passionate about teaching Jiu-Jitsu martial arts because it allows his students to have an abundance of fun, make lifelong friendships, build self-confidence, and learn skills that can protect themselves and others (“Bully-Proof” the kids), all at the same time. He loves the self-defense aspects of the Jiu-Jitsu. His goal is to be a role model to young men and to let them know (and witness) that a man can be skillful and respectful to everyone. “It is wonderful to have the kids compete in the local grappling tournaments and perform up to their ability while being respectful to their opponents.” “It is gratifying to see the students exemplify the definition of Jiu-Jitsu by defending themselves before submitting their very aggressive opponents.
