Geovanny Martinez, commonly known as “Geo” Martinez or by the nickname “Freakazoid” is a jiu-jitsu black belt under Eddie Bravo and one of the top American grapplers in the No-Gi competitive scene having defeated big names of the sport such as Jeff Glover and Fabbio Passos. A submission orientated fighter, Martinez came from a breakdancing (B-boying) background, quickly adapting to the 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu system, reaching his black belt status in only three years of training. Geovanny is also the brother of another talented competitor in Richie Martinez.

Geo Martinez Biography

Geovanny Martinez was born in San Diego, California (1987). After a life dedicated to breakdancing, in 2011 Geo was asked to give dancing classes to Ryan Ford’s son at the 10th Planet gym in Vista, CA. In return, Martinez was offered the chance to train jiu-jitsu for free.

It took only a few classes to spark the interest of Martinez. Training with Sean Bollinger at 10th Planet Vista, Geo’s natural talent started shining through at local competitions. Being a professional breakdancer, Geovanny possessed many of the natural attributes desired in a jiu-jitsu athlete, such as strength, flexibility, balance, and unusual spacial awareness. These characteristics helped him excel in the West Coast no-gi jiu-jitsu circuit.

As a purple belt, Geo Martinez started training more with the founder of the 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu academy, Eddie Bravo. It would be Bravo who would award Martinez his brown and black belts, the later on January 2014.

Throughout 2014, his first year as a black belt, Martinez went undefeated, competing in tough tournaments such as the Gracie Nationals, ADCC Trials, and the Eddie Bravo Invitational, where he collected his most impressive win of the year, beating ADCC veteran and former World Champion, Jeff Glover in the final.

Although Geo Martinez intended to compete at the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) World No-Gi Championship in 2014, he was denied entry in the tournament as he did not meet the IBJJF’s time-in-rank requirements.
