he was looking for something more. Combining basic Judo locks with his wrestling he started to formulate his own style and style and system of martial arts and self defense. In 1992 he opened his first school. In 1993 he saw the first Ultimate Fighting Championship and realized that the Gracie family (which are well known for their very effective style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) was much more advanced than his current ideas. Shortly after viewing the first UFC Jackson started to diligently develop more techniques. Also, in 1993 he started training in kickboxing under his mentor Michael Winkeljohn, who is a five-time world champion and is still to this day a mentor to Jackson.

His team has won such prestigious awards such as Grapplers Quest, the Pan American games and others. Jackson's fight team is also ranked #1 in the highest winning percentage by Sherdog.com.

Jackson has competitors in Pride, UFC, Abu Dhabi, and many other prestigious events. Some of his top fighters include Keith Jardine, Rashad Evans, Georges St. Pierre, Nate Marquardt, Joey Villasenor, David Loiseau, Damacio Page, Tait Fletcher, Duane Ludwig, Leonard Garcia, Julie Kedzie, and a whole host of up-and-coming future fight champions. Amongst some of these fighters, Jackson has had competitors on "The Ultimate Fighter."
