Kevin began his Jiu Jitsu journey in 2010 under Professor Gordon Kimura while serving in the military in Tokyo, Japan. Under Professor Kimura, Kevin received his Blue Belt. Kevin has trained with top level grapplers from various gyms from Axis Japan to Paragon of Santa Maria. Kevin has missed some years of training due to injuries and other circumstances. In late 2013, Kevin started to call Julio Juarez BJJ home, and under the tutelage of Professor Julio Juarez he was promoted to Purple Belt which once again ignited his passion for BJJ.
