Josh Cisneros Biography

Josh Cisneros was born on May 2, 2000, in Santa Maria, California, USA, spending his first 5 years in Bakersfield, after which he moved to Selma, also in California.

Growing up, sports were a crucial part of Josh’s day to day life. A lifestyle that included wrestling from a young age, a sport he played for 12 years, including at a state level for the Selma High School. Cisneros also practiced boxing and muay Thai for a few years during his childhood days.

Being a former jiu-jitsu practitioner and a student of Royce Gracie back in the late 1990s, once he found the Elite Team Visalia academy, Cisneros’ father decided to join Josh and his younger brother Jacob to BJJ classes. Joshua was 12 years old at the time.

Cisneros’ first and only instructor during his rise from white to black belt was Tom Knox, a pro skater and black belt under Cleber Luciano. Josh split his time between BJJ and wrestling for 3 years before shifting gears t the ae of 15 and focussing solely on BJJ.

By the end of Augusto 2020, Tom Knox promoted Josh Cisneros to black belt after an outstanding year as a brown belt.
