How I train

My name is Travis Stevens and training is my passion in life. I've been involved in combat sports since I was six years old. Over the years I have fallen in love with all combat sports from Judo, BJJ, Wrestling, Boxing, MMA. My original passion was judo and I have made a career out of it. I've competed in the 2008 and the 2012 Olympic Games both of which I competed at the 81kg weight class. So I know what it takes to take a dream and make it a reality no matter how much of a fantasy you my think it is. In judo I'm considered one of the best ground fighters in the world. Over the years I have crossed trained a lot in BJJ quietly taking in as much information as I could from some of the greatest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu minds the sport as ever known (Dave Camarillo, Renzo Gracie, John Danaher, Alan Teo, Marcelo Alonso, Tim Burrill).
