Jennifer Pfeifer

Evening Martial Arts Director/ Women Empowered Jiu-jitsu instructor

Why do I love being on the team at Genesis Jiu-Jitsu Academy Jeffersonville? My input and opinions are valued. As an instructor, I enjoy helping women discover the magic of Jiu-Jitsu.

I have a 2nd degree Black Belt in Taekwondo.  I started Taekwondo in 2013 with my family. We all worked through the ranks together.   It was a very rewarding experience.For the first time in my life, exercise was enjoyable. I enjoyed helping my peers as a student instructor.

In 2018 when the Gracie program was introduced to our academy,  I started the Women Empowered program and switched my focus to jiu-jitsu.  I earned my Pink Belt and I knew that I wanted to be an instructor.   I am happy that I can help other women protect themselves.  My goal is to continue teaching and encouraging women through this program.  I want to help them to earn their Pink Belts too.  It would be a great honor to earn my instructor bars in the next 5 years.

Tré Jackson

Evening Martial Arts Director

When I see a student succeed in something they have been struggling with it’s the greatest feeling in the world! I started training in taekwondo in 2000 in Bowling Green. KY, and came to Indiana in 2017 and have been teaching here ever since.  I’ve been training for over 20 years and teaching for well over a decade. My goal for my students is simple, to strive to be anything they want to be and be the best at it. Martial arts has changed my life in so many ways I can not count. It’s like I’m giving back what was given to me to the next generation of leaders.
