While growing up Clinton Johnson was always a fan of MMA and aware of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and its origins. After participating in sports throughout school, he was looking to channel his competitive nature. In 2010 Clinton found Indianapolis Jiu-Jitsu, attended a trial class and joined the academy in August. Quickly falling in love with BJJ, Clinton decided to enter his first competition in November 2010, and won both of his matches by points. From then on he got the competition bug.
In 2011 Clinton kicked into high gear entering 10 tournaments and earning 13 medals. 2012 was a breakthrough year for Clinton starting with 2 Gold medals at a January tournament giving up no points on the day. After much training at the academy and winning the Hoosier Open for the second consecutive year, Clinton earned his Blue Belt from Professor Greg Eldred in July 2012.
Clinton transitioned well into Blue Belt competition winning his weight division and the absolute in September 2012. During 2013 Clinton continued competing and earned 8 medals in five competitions. For 2014, Clinton has set his sights on the most prestigious BJJ tournament in the world, the Mundials, in May. Having world-class instruction by Professor Greg Eldred multiple times per week is helping him prepare to be Indy BJJ’s first world champion. Good Luck Clinton!
