Message from the Founder
My name is Chris Campbell. I am the owner and head instructor at Technique Lab Jiu Jitsu Academy. I have been training combat sports and martial arts for over 20 years. I started wrestling in 1999 and transitioned to boxing after high school before training kickboxing, judo, muay Thai, and finally Brazilian jiu jitsu for the last 9 years. I’ve been teaching jiu jitsu in some capacity to people of all ages and skill levels for the last 7 years. I’ve been involved in kids' classes, adult classes, advanced classes, teens' classes, women’s only classes, and self-defense classes. I’ve also run many successful kids' summer camps, and now I’m excited to bring the amazing art of Brazilian jiu jitsu to West Richland.
I am currently a two stripe brown belt under Professor Beau Babb, who is a first degree black belt under Professor Marcelo Alonso, who received his black belt from the legendary Carlson Gracie Sr. My wife, our two daughters, and I all train together, and we live here in West Richland. I have dedicated myself to becoming an excellent student and an excellent training partner and have developed a lot of knowledge, skill, and teaching ability throughout the years. I have always put an emphasis on quality, high standards, and attention to detail. I love developing positive relationships with people and sharing what I love with everyone who steps onto the mat. I’m really looking forward to training with you.
