  • Head coach & professor Jason Mills

  • bjj blackbelt (ibjjf recognized)

  • 1st Dan blackbelt(2001)- TKD,

  • professional kickboxer,

  • Professional MMA fighter

  • ACADEMY OWNER & COACH (10 YRS)


Coach Jason brings a wealth of experience to his role as a coach. Starting out as a child in TaeKwon-Do he quickly achieved the rank of blackbelt under Grandmaster Charles Sereff. Not satisfied, he began experimenting with other martial arts. After training in 23 different martial arts, and over 24 years experience, with 17 years experience as a professional fighter, there is almost no area of 'the game' he hasn't seen. Holding ranks in several different martial arts, and multiple certifications as an instructor you can rest assured you're receiving 'real world' technique and instruction from someone who has actually been there and dedicated his life to higher education in the martial arts field. After 16 years of grappling and "Mixed rules" experience, and 10 years in wonderful art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Jason has found his place teaching Brazilian Jiu-jitsu as his main style, and complimenting it with Muay Thai kickboxing and MMA at his academy located in Sheboygan, WI named Highland Fight systems (HFS). HFS is a Veneration BJJ affiliate He is also licensed with the Wisconsin state athletic commission as a fighter, second (cornerman), promoter, and matchmaker. With experience as a cutman, he has coached and cornered hundreds of matches and fights across the country at every level of BJJ, MMA, and Kickboxing. HFS is proud to have produced several champions, but most of all coach Jason is proud to be a father, and considers the personal growth of his family and students to be his greatest success stories.

"The most talented people come and go through these sports.. but being a good person? That's an entirely different story. I'm not so concerned with what you've accomplished, I'm more concerned with your depth and tenor of character as a person. Seeing someone that's timid, or been a victim, find their power is one of the most rewarding things as an instructor. The environment [in martial arts] also lends soo much to the development of young minds and their personalities that is sadly missing from a lot of modern culture."-COACH JASON
