In 2004, Jayson Patino would start his Jiu-Jitsu journey with the UCF Jiu-Jitsu club. Jayson would show up an hour before wrestling practice started in order to practice Jiu-Jitsu. After graduating from UCF, Jayson continued training and competing in Jiu-Jitsu and fighting professional MMA. Then in 2011, he opened American Top Team East Orlando. In 2013 Jayson was awarded his black belt in Jiu-Jitsu by Master Liborio. Jayson’s mission has always been to help as many students as possible both on and off the mats.
A few years later, Ricardo Liborio left ATT, and in 2023 Jayson also left to start his own brand. Today, Champions Jiu-Jitsu & Muay Thai continues to offer the same high-quality standards and world class training that it always offered.
