David Garmo Biography

David Garmo was born on February 19th, 1990, in West Bloomfield, Michigan, United States of America.

David started practicing combat sports in 1995 at the Michigan Martial Arts, he was 5 years old at the time. It was at this facility that Garmo was introduced to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by then blue belt, Lee Miles.

His introduction to martial arts at Michigan MA continued on a somewhat intermittent rhythm, until Garmo’s 10th anniversary when he quit altogether. This attitude towards sports would change during high school when David picked up wrestling at the Brother Rice High School, an activity he practiced and competed until his graduation.

After he left high school David looked for another sport to follow, finding it by returning to Brazilian jiu-jitsu at the MASH Gym in October 2008.

As soon as he left secondary school, Garmo knew he did not want to pursue academic life and believed his future was in cage-fighting, an idea that started dissipating as he got more involved with jiu-jitsu. Within 1.5 years David was fully in pursuit of a career in grappling, living as a full-time BJJ athlete.

In search of his goals, David received plenty of help from his coaches, namely Don Richard, Brandon Fracassi, John Toth, Angelo Popofski and Harvy Berman, with the celebrated Master, Mr. Caique Elias in charge of Garmo’s belt promotions from white to brown.

As a brown belt, David started making regular visits to Tokyo, Japan, spending extended periods of time there, training and coaching at the famous Carpe Diem Academy. On one of his returns to the US, Garmo was promoted to black belt by his friend and mentor, Danny Agemy. A promotion that took place in October 2017.
