In March of 2020 when the world was dealing with a worldwide pandemic and gyms were forcibly being closed across the nation, Coach Josh was the head coach of his BJJ program at Jackson's MMA Association. Unfortunately, it was also at this time Jackson's MMA Association decided to close their doors and a chapter of Mixed Martial Arts in Pueblo, CO.  This was a devastating blow, as Coach Josh just lost his job, but more importantly he could not bear the thought of his students not having a place to continue their journey in BJJ.  It was not even a second thought when he decided, amongst all the uncertainty happening in the world to open his own academy.  He knew with his team behind him he could continue training and coaching the students, he considers family.  With that, Childress Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy was born in May of 2020 with their doors opening in June 2020.
