Owner / Head Instructor
Clay began training Jiu-Jitsu in 2008, under the legendary Royce Gracie. At age 18 he began teaching full-time, soon incorporating Judo and wrestling into his training. In 2017 he joined the world-renowned Pedigo Submission Fighting competition team under Heath Pedigo, and is now one of the top ranked Brown Belts in the world.
Clay travels on a regular basis competing and teaching seminars, remaining very active on the professional Jiu-Jitsu circuit.
“My goal as a coach is simply for every person who walks through the doors to become a better version of themselves. Not everyone will want to be a World Champion, although many of our students are athletes and competitors. Not everyone will need to lose weight, or relieve stress, or make friends – although almost all of our students do these things. But everyone is on a journey to improve in SOME way – and my goal is to help you be 1% Better Every Day!” – Clay Mayfield
