Early life and family

Craig Jones BJJ Net Worth And Career

Craig Jones broke out as an elite BJJ athlete at ADCC 2017, and continued his competition success in the years after. He won many matches with the inside heel hook, and became known as a leg lock specialist. Despite winning many matches, Craig Jones has yet to win a gold medal at a major tournament like the IBJJF World Championships or ADCC.

The early success of Craig Jones came while training with Lachlan Giles in Melbourne Australia. But, Craig felt that to get to the next level, he needed to train with the best grapplers alive. Therefore, he moved to New York and joined the Danaher Death Squad (DDS).

At the DDS, he trained daily with Gordon Ryan and Garry Tonon under the coaching of John Danaher. This boosted his improvement, and Craig Jones is now clearly a contender to win ADCC in 2022. 

Shortly after the DDS moved to Puerto Rico, they broke up. Craig Jones founded B-Team jiu jitsu where he now trains with Nicky Ryan and Nicky Rod in Austin Texas. Since John Danaher, Gordon Ryan and Garry Tonon all also live in Austin Texas now, some suspect that they still train together and that the DDS breaking up was just a marketing stunt.
