In addition to his independent work, James Campbell’s role with Dynamic Striking has seen him as both a coach and a training partner. He flies around for the company and works directly with top talent such as Matt Brown, Henry Cejudo, and Mike Tyson to film the best version of their technique and produce the content for the site. He’s truly instrumental in bringing some of our best content we have to offer.
As a teen and young adult, James Campbell found himself gravitating towards traditional sports that are played with teams. He wound up on the football team at a young age and fell in love with that sport through his time playing in high school. He graduated from his high school in 1998 and went to Merrimack College.
After high school, Jamie decided to pursue more football to help fill the competitive drive in his life, and for the love of the game. He went to Merrimack College for the chance to play football but he also wrestled as a secondary sport, which was very helpful in his future Mixed Martial Arts endeavors. Upon graduating from college around age twenty-two, Jamie was looking for yet another outlet for his competitive nature and to help keep his mind and body sharp.
Jamie finished his college football career as an All American in 2002, and he found a gym called Boston Muay Thai which has since disbanded. At this gym, he paired the wrestling skills that he’d built in high school and college, the tenacity and hard-training mindset gained from football, and finally some striking skill. This would all be necessary as he kept his eyes on fighting as a professional goal.
As he saw it, striking was the biggest hole in his game so Jamie Campbell dove in deep to that world. Not only did he continue dedicated training at Boston Muay Thai, but he also entered bouts as an amateur boxer in his twenties to hone these skills even further. He eventually earned the golden glove designation on the regional circuit.
When asked in an interview about his lack of Jiu Jitsu in the early days of MMA he laughed, and said wrestling and striking were considered a complete game back in the day. Now, he recognizes, the game has evolved to a point where an active competitor who wants a shot at a title must be not only a devastating striker and competent striker, but also an ace on the ground when it comes to submissions.
Jamie Campbell has never taken the easy path. After competing as a pro fighter for about four years, he then decided to make a serious sacrifice and join the military as a member of the Army from the year 2014 until he was honorably discharged in 2017. In the time since, Jamie has been instrumental in helping the BJJ fanatics team spread out into the striking world by being one of the primary liaisons between the talent and the site.
Whether it’s a striking seminar, a wrestling tip, or a workout class, Jamie Campbell has you covered. As one of the premiere traveling coaches in the world, Jamie has had the chance to mix it up with top level talent, including boxing, muay thai, and mixed martial arts world champions. So keep an eye out for Jamie in your next Dynamic Striking instructional; there’s a good chance he’s holding the pads and taking the shots so you don’t have to!
