Jozef Chen

Jozef Chen is a brown belt under Craig Jones of B-Team Jiu-Jitsu in Austin, Texas. He is also affiliated with Wutong, Method MMA, and Absolute MMA.

An initial interest in MMA sparked Jozef’s curiosity for learning the nuances of grappling, and in August 2018, he began training Brazilian jiu-jitsu at Nanjing BJJ in China.     Since then, he has competed over 20 times, making impressive international debuts at ADCC and winning his first televised superfight on WNO.

Jozef has taught seminars on guard passing, wrestling up, butterfly sweeps, and hand fighting across Shanghai, Harbin, Singapore, Taipei, Sydney, and Nanjing. He describes his jiu-jitsu style as efficient, effective and appropriate, and his role models are John Danaher, Gordon Ryan, Craig Jones, Nicky Ryan, Brian Glick, and Jason Rau.    

‘My philosophy towards training is that of improvement, trying to understand grappling deeply and objectively will enable me to communicate and display it in beautiful ways,’ he said.
