Professor Fraser Jordan:
Professor Fraser Jordan, I have been training in some form of martial arts since I was a teen starting with High School with the sport of wrestling. With wrestling, I found confidence, support, and Community which led to a lifelong love of martial arts. Following the end of high school, I felt somewhat lost as to how to continue my love of Martial Arts. This ended 4 years later when I first walked into Pure Martial Arts. I have trained under Jodey Ingalls for the past 18 years. I have trained in many gyms over the years but have always called Pure Martial Arts home. I have found the same sense of community that I found as a teen in the sport of wrestling, and this has always kept me coming back. Over the years I have trained in Freestyle Wrestling, Judo, No-Gi Grappling, Kickboxing, and Boxing. I have competed in multiple forms of Grappling, Pankration, and have gone 4-0 in Amateur MMA. I received my blackbelt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in 2019 and remain focused on passing on my knowledge of not only the sport of BJJ but of Mixed Martial Arts which has been developed over 20 years. I focus heavily on the points of learning and motivation as a way to be an important part of the martial arts journey of those around me. My goal as an instructor is to understand the learning styles and motivation of others and try to tailor lessons to the individual's own martial arts goals. Not only the sport of BJJ, but of mixed martial arts as well. I have cornered dozens of mixed martial arts fights over the years and run multiple training camps. I focus heavily on learning styles and personal motivation to support others' martial arts journeys.
I started my martial arts journey when I was 7 years old. As soon as I started at PMA , I instantly fell in love with the trainning. Since starting training I’ve learned Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, No-gi Grappling, and Muay Thai Kickboxing. Martial arts have helped me dramatically mentally, and physically. If I am having a difficult day, or need to clear my mind, I know training is going to help me with whatever is going on in my life. It is my escape from the real world.
Since I started coaching at PMA my main goal is to help everyone to improve. I feel like it is my responsibility to help everyone be the best person they can be, inside and outside the studio. Especially for those who are training for competitions. For someone who has trained for so long, I have competed in various competitions as well in Jiu Jitsu. I did not compete much when I was younger. But halfway into middle school, I started to do competitions. The more I train and study Jiu-jitsu, the more I want to compete, and one day compete in lager world class tournaments.
