Colby Hernandez began his Jiu-Jitsu journey in 2018 with Kingdom Jiu-Jitsu in Garland, Texas, an affiliate under Rafael Lovato Jr. He decided shortly after beginning his journey that he wanted to become a World Champion, and so he started homeschooling and focusing heavily on his training.
In 2019, after earning his blue belt, he decided to make a change to join the Soul Fighters team so that he could continue his training under Bruno “Tank” Mendes. This year (2021) because of his decision to train under Soul Fighters, Colby was able to become the IBJJF No-Gi Juvenile Blue Belt World Champion.
Colby is very detailed and strategically oriented, and therefore has been successful in working with others to further their Jiu-Jitsu knowledge. He held the position of instructor/coach for a local kids BJJ program for the last 2 years, and still works privately with several award-winning students. He has also competed successfully in several tournaments as well as multiple super fights. Colby is always excited to share his Jiu-Jitsu knowledge with others.
