He obtained his High Green Belt in Tae Kwon Do under Hung Choi, with whom he trained until he was ten. He then began studying at Oregon Martial Arts College under Mr. Ed Ferrigan. Mr. Ferrigan’s teachings were highly based upon Wun Hop Kuen Do, however the forms studied were that of Tang So Do. In June of 1998, at the age of 15, Jason received an adult Black Belt in Tang So Do (mixed with Wun Hop Kuen Do). Around this time, Oregon Marital Art College changed ownership to Sensei Steve Ward where Jason continued to study under the Japanese kentojuku system. However, this style was significantly different from his roots of Wun Hop Kuen Do and Tang So Do. In December of 1998, Jason began to study Wun Hop Kuen Do directly under Sifu Al Dacascos in Portland, Oregon. On July 19, 2003 Jason was the sole person awarded his Black Belt in Wun Hop Kuen Do. Since that time, Jason has formed and taught the Wun Hop Kuen Do club at Brandeis University while pursuing his academic studies in Biochemistry. On April 10th, 2005, Jason was awarded his 2nd Degree in Wun Hop Kuen Do from Grandmaster Al Dacascos. In July of 2006, Jason was named secretary of the Wun Hop Kuen Do International Association and was granted a proxy Sifu-ship by Grandmaster Dacascos. In September of 2006, he opened a WHKD club at UNC-CH in North Carolina, where he is pursuing his graduate studies. In the spring of 2007, Sifu Jason opened his first commercial school in the Triangle area. On July 30th, 2007, Sifu Jason was promoted to 3rd Degree in Wun Hop Kuen Do by Grandmaster Dacascos.
