ISLAND JIU-JITSU for choosing JBD to re-brand and develop their website marketing! The site-build is going great and the new site launch! A testament to good people and great business. Aloha! –

Jason Vigil, Owner/Coach

Jason quickly discovered his passion for teaching, and began teaching his friends in his garage in 2004. Island Jiu-Jitsu was formed in 2010 in the backyard of a home in Hawaii Kai as a jiu-jitsu club.

In 2012, after the birth of his first daughter, Jason decided to open a formal jiu-jitsu school, subleasing in various locations in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Jason received his Black Belt in 2013 from Jason Izaguirre (Owner/Coach of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Kailua).

In 2015, Jason’s dream of opening his own dojo came true; as well as his dream of becoming a RVCA dojo.  Island Jiu-Jisu is now located at Puck’s Alley in the University area.  Island Jiu-Jitsu is sponsored by RVCA and authorized to sell RVCA apparel, gear, and sports items.

Jason believes students need to learn both the basics of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu self-defense, and the new techniques that world champions use today.  His integrated style makes classes diverse and fun.
