Emilio Hernandez Biography

Emilio Hernandez was born on July 2, 1996, in Yakima, Washington, United States of America, where he spent his childhood.

A very active kid while growing up, Hernandez practiced a variety of sports from an early age, including baseball, basketball as well as track and field, though the game he played the most was football (soccer), which Emilio started when he was 5 years old and ended after graduating from high school.

At the age of 14, Emilio Hernandez moved to Spring Hill, Tennessee, to live with his aunt. This was a particularly stressful period for the young athlete, who saw himself away from his parents for an extended period for the first time. As a way to relieve some of the anxiety he was experiencing, Emilio decided to start practicing a combat sport, then joining a small, local mixed martial arts (MMA) school for that purpose.

Emilio first started training jiu-jitsu in August 2010 in Columbia, TN with coach Keefe Cothran. After a year of training at this MMA oriented gym, Hernandez opted to switch to a bigger, and more jiu-jitsu focussed training center, deciding on Ray Casias’ – Tennessee Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy.

Under Ray Casias, Hernandez progressed through the belt system and grew as a competitor in the local and national scene. His positive results led him to abandon all extra activities to focus solely on to his grappling, a decision he made as a purple belt.

The continuous positive results obtained on the mats throughout the years led Ray Casias to promote Emilio to black belt on July 22 of 2019.
