History

Greg Jackson was born in Washington, D.C. and moved to New Mexico at the age of 2. He grew up in a family of wrestlers.[2] Due to the rough neighborhood in which he was brought up, Jackson began training in martial arts at a young age.Template:Fact After several years, Jackson, seeking more out of his training, found a way to combine basic judo locks with wrestling and striking to create his own unique style of martial arts and self-defense which he called Gaidojutsu.Template:Fact

Jackson continued to develop new techniques after watching the first UFC and began training kickboxing under five-time kickboxing champion Michael Winkeljohn, creating a more complete training regimen.Template:Fact

At UFC 94 St-Pierre vs Penn, Georges St-Pierre’s cornermen, including Jackson, were at the center of a controversy after officials from the Nevada State Athletic Commission approached them during the fight to investigate allegations that they illegally applied Vaseline to St-Pierre's back in between rounds one and two. On Feb 3, 2009 JD Penn, brother of UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn, announced they will be filing a formal complaint with the NSAC against St-Pierre.[3]
