eff Hudson is the founder of Relson Gracie Columbus and the first to introduce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to the Buckeye State. His training began when he and some of his fellow Tae Kwon Do black belts watched the original Gracie’s in Action video. Jeff has been teaching since 1993 and in that time has spent more time in private lessons with Relson than anyone. His passion for the art has sent him on countless trips to the California Gracie Academy to learn and bring his knowledge back to friends and students in Columbus. In March of 2003, Dr. Hudson was awarded the faxia preta (black belt) from Master Relson Gracie.
Jeff has produced numerous champion competitors and won his own championship title at the Pan-American Competition in 1999. In addition, Jeff is the owner/operator of Hudson Spinal Health and Rehabilitation Center featuring the Pettibon System of Spinal Correction and Science Based Nutrition. Currently, Jeff is the instructor for the advanced classes.
