Our Story

Keweenaw Jiu Jitsu started originally as a grappling club at MTU.
In 2015, Shaughn Kern founded Keweenaw Jiu Jitsu and we started as our own academy running out of the local Houghton Crossfit.
In 2016, Shaughn hired assistant coach Stan Myaskovkiy to help grow the academy and offer more classes. We opened a 2nd location in Lake Linden.
Early 2017 came the news that Shaughn and his family would be relocating to Ohio to pursue new opportunities.
KJJ ownership was then transferred over to Stan Myaskovskiy in early 2017.
In June 2017, KJJ had finally outgrown the space and capacity for classes at Crossfit, and we decided to open our own full time academy!
