Video: Get an Early Look at Craig Jones Teaching at B-Team Jiu-Jitsu

Craig Jones’ move from Puerto Rico to Austin, TX is well under way, and the Australian black belt is potentially just days away from opening his B-Team Jiu-Jitsu academy in Austin, TX. In a recent video, we see the B-Team facility and an informal training session in which Jones teaches a handful of techniques. Watch that video below.

Although the B-Team has yet to officially open, the new academy appears to have a reasonably large space filled with mats and a sign out front. And given Jones’ status as one of the most well-known and best competitors in the world, that’s likely all he’ll need to attract plenty of new students.

Following John Danaher’s announcement earlier this year that the Danaher Death Squad was disbanding, Jones announced his plans to move to Austin, TX and open an academy alongside fellow DDS members Nicky Ryan, Nick Rodriguez, and Ethan Crelinsten. Danaher and other former DDS members Garry Tonon and Gordon Ryan also plan to open a jiu-jitsu academy, also in Austin.

Jones is scheduled to compete next in the 185-pound division of the Who’s Number One championships on September 25-26.
