Jamie Clubb


Jamie Chipperfield Clubb was born into a circus family. He lived on his parents’ travelling show until they ceased touring in 1983.

Unsurprisingly his background led him to pursue a wide range of subjects and experiences. He has had a lifelong interest in writing, history, psychology, literature, mythology, the arts, criminology, showbusiness, critical thinking and physical development.

He has been a professional performer, an extreme professional wrestling promoter, an administrator for his parents’ private zoo and he is a qualified assessor for National Vocational Qualifications/Qualifications and Credit Framework.

He gained his first black belt aged 16 in Sakiado and went on to train in a wide range of martial arts and modern self-protection systems, gaining several teaching qualifications, including a BTEC Advanced Award in Self-Defence Instruction. Having written for the UK’s leading martial arts magazines he has had the opportunity to train closely with some of the world’s most renowned instructors. He founded his own approach to martial arts and self-protection, Clubb Chimera Martial Arts in 2004.

He wrote and presented the best-selling documentaries, Cross Training in the Martial Arts 1 and 2, in 2005 and 2006 respectively.

His first book, The Legend of Salt and Sauce, was published in 2008.

In addition to his martial arts business website, Jamie has two blogs:

www.beelzebubsbroker.blogspot.com for all his miscellaneous writings
www.jamieclubb.blogspot.com for his work related to circus history

Jamie is married with a daughter, a stepdaughter and a stepson, and lives on his parents’ zoo in the Cotswolds.
