Angelo Claiborne Biography

Angelo Claiborne was born on June 15, 1995, at Prince George’s Hospital in Bladensburg – Maryland, growing up in the neighboring Temple Hills.

As a toddler, Angelo showed signs of hyperactivity. To help release some of that energy, as soon as he was 5 years of age, Claiborne was signed on to Team Lloyd Irvin’s gym, where he joined the kids’ martial arts program (Thai Jitsu). He would later, go on to dedicate his full extra-curricular time to jiu-jitsu, starting from the age of 7 with coach Donnie Achnick, also known as Master Donald.

Angelo wrestled in high school, during his 11th and 12th grades and conquered a Montgomery County Wrestling title before deciding that he wanted to dedicate his full attention to jiu-jitsu at the age of 17. His pursuit to become one of the best grapplers in the nation earned Claiborne international medals at the World and Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championships, ultimately leading to his black belt promotion in June 2019.
