Joe Dierkhising Biography

Joe Dierkhising was born on May 29, 1989, in Santa Rosa, California, United States, but grew up in a range of The Golden State’s locations, including St. Helena, and San Diego.

An athlete at heart, Dierkhising practiced many sports at a competitive level from early in life which included skateboarding and surfing, as well as a range of high school activities such as water polo and swimming – the latter a sport he played at a Junior Olympics level (AAU). Unsatisfied with his long list of sporting accolades during HS, Dierkhising turned to triathlon for his collegiate career.

Although proficient and very involved in all of the aforementioned activities while maintaining academic success, Joe Dierkhising still found time to practice martial arts regularly. First, as a child, with Japanese Ju-Jutsu, then during his pre-teens with taekwondo, later adding Muay Thai, a combat style he practiced for a number of years and where he conquered an amateur record of 3-0-0.

Dierkhising’s first interest in grappling took place at his Muay Thai club. At the time many of his striking buddies would stay at the gym after class and do rounds of no-gi grappling, eventually, in 2010, after a year of watching them roll, Joe decided to join the fun. His coach at the time was Justin Frazier.

Following graduation in 2012, the California native relocated to San Diego and began training Brazilian jiu-jitsu in 2012 with Adriano Camolese, earning his blue belt under Eduardo Guedes (2013), his purple belt from Kelley Perotti and Shannone Callos (2014), before finally settling down in Houston, Texas, at the local BJJ Revolution team affiliate with Jeff Messina who promoted Dierkhising to brown (2017) and black belt (January 2019).

In 2018, Australia’s Craig Jones, one of the sport’s main no-gi competitors visited Houston for a workshop. During his stay, Dierkhising befriended Jones. In 2021, when Craig relocated to Austin, Texas to open the B-Team headquarters, Joe Dierkhising became a regular student of Jones, visiting the gym weekly while maintaining his connection with BJJ Revolution.
