Jason Field

Jason has over 20 years of martial arts experience.  Currently opening a new Academy in his hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia, this is the second blue print of the established Inyodo Academy in Colorado. Prior to establishing Inyodo in the Edwards/Vail area of Colorado, Jason trained and taught in Los Angeles, California under renowned grand master Jun Chong.  A diligent student of the martial arts, training daily in TaeKwonDo, Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu,  Jason holds a 3rd degree Black Belt in TaeKwonDo, a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is a fourteen-year veteran of professional kickboxing.  In 2006 Jason starred in the mixed martial art feature film “Maximum Cage Fighting”.  Filming took place in Brazil and Los Angeles.  In the film are martial art legends Renzo Gracie, Higan Machado, Gerson Sanginitto, Jun Chong and the Dog Brothers.  

In 2005 Jason created the local Vail Competition Team.  Since then they have built a strong reputation within the sport fighting community, having coached well known fighters such as Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, Leonard Garcia, Goyito Perez, Tom "Kong" Watson, Kyle Noke and Michelle "karate hottie" Waterson to name a few, and hosted camps of others such as Matt Brown and Justin Gaethje.  Most recently Jason has enjoyed coaching in three WEC Championship fights, and in the UFC.

Jason has brought this experience locally to Vail, spearheading 5 Athletic Boxing Commissioned MMA events here in Colorado. Headliners of these cards include Ben Henderson, Brandon Thatch, Tyler Toner and Rocky Johnson. Continuing his interest in mixed martial arts, Jason has been a television commentator for the mixed martial art league “Ring of Fire” on HDNET. 

Outside of competitive martial arts, Jason can be found at the studio teaching classes or stretching on the mat.  Jason says training is not so much about the belt you wear but the mindset you obtain, the discipline you command, and the respect that you give.
