Jared Emfield is the instructor and founder of The Academy of Martial Arts, Colossal's sister-school in Idaho Falls. (He, in fact, started the school in Pocatello in 2006 where each instructor began their journey. That school evolved into Precision Jiu Jitsu, which later became Colossal Fight Company.)
Mr. Emfield has earned black belts in multiple martial arts including Gracie Jiu Jitsu and has been teaching martial arts for over 20 years. He began his training with Professor Sauer as a college student in Utah thirteen years ago. He was impressed that Master Sauer did not strive to be the "biggest and baddest", but to be an encouraging and gentle training partner. He fell victim to the benefits of Jiu Jitsu and the Pedro Sauer philosophy of being a gentleman on and off the mats. This philosophy was embraced by Jared and is now passed down to his students.
Due to his extensive background and passion for sharing martial arts, Jared's talent, not only as a practitioner but as an instructor, is immense. And though he is no longer the owner of the academy, we are incredibly lucky to have him as a guest instructor at Precision Jiu Jitsu as often as we can.
