Jared Thompson


Camarillo JiuJitsu Black Belt and Zombie Class instructor

Jared Thompson began training Jiu-Jitsu under Dan Camarillo in 2003. A short time later, Jared moved the the Bay area for law school, and began training under Crosley Gracie in 2004. While training under Crosley, Jared earned his blue belt, and continued to train with Dan whenever he visited home. In 2007, Jared returned to Bakersfield and has been training under Dan Camarillo since that time. In 2012, Jared began opening the gym for a morning class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and that class became known as “Camarillo Zombie Jiu Jitsu”. Jared is the instructor in the Zombie class every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:45 to 7:00 a.m. It’s a great way to start the day and a good way to get some extra sessions on the mat each week.
