Regional Amateur Muay Thai Champion Jeff Chan was an active and energetic child who was always more interested in sports than academic pursuits. Chan first began his martial arts journey with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but he soon switched to Muay Thai and fell in love with it immediately. Chan quickly dropped all other sports to focus on his new passion and began competing actively, stepping into the ring more than two dozen times while winning a regional title.
That was when his coach began pushing him to try his hand at mixed martial arts, prompting him to step back onto the mats and eventually earn his brown belt in BJJ. After some initial success, Chan was forced to temporarily set martial arts aside to pursue a career in law enforcement. But a series of personal struggles, including the death of his father, brought him back to his focus on martial arts, and he realized that was where his true passion lies.
Chan rededicated himself to his training and moved to Montreal to join the famed Tristar gym. His focus now is on becoming the best version of himself that he can possibly be and continuing to help others around the world, especially via an online community that he created to interact with other martial artists.
