Jimmy Pearce

Started bjj on the coast after leaving hometown in north Georgia and no longer being about to wrestle. Became a police officer in 2012 and started teaching GST.

Taught at bjj schools and the police academy for 9 years until finding GGC a year and a half ago. Passion is teaching GST and combatives to police/ military and civilians to better protect themselves and others.

GST has been the best and safest defense against criminals and opponents during patrol, SWAT Operations and on the mats.

I have trained with Professor Jay many times and he teaches you not just the moves, but also the theory and concepts of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. After training with him I have noticed how I analyze the sparring I do and how I am able to implement the game plan. If you live in the area I highly recommend training with Prof Jay.
