Josh Hinger Biography

Josh Hinger was born on May 28, 1982 in Whittier, CA – USA, being raised in La Habra where he gave a start to his grappling lifestyle, by wrestling for Sonora High School, in Brea.

At the age of 15 Josh moved to Temecula, CA. continuing to wrestle, this time for Chaparral High School for whom he won the CIF 145lbs division during his senior year (2000).

Three years after finishing his high school wrestling career, Josh ran into an old wrestling teammate who asked him if he wanted to tag along and check out a jiu jitsu academy. Hinger agreed to the trip – mainly because he wanted some mats where to wrestle with his buddy, though that first jiu jitsu class would completely sway Hinger to learn the Brazilian way of grappling. Hinger recollects this moment well: “I remember it was on July 2, 2003 because I loved jiu-jitsu so much that I showed up for evening class on the 4th of July and no one was there. I called the instructor and asked if there was class. He said: ‘man, go to a BBQ and watch some fireworks’.

On November 2003, with four months of jiu jitsu training under his belt, Hinger made his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) debut. A career that extended to a 4-1-0 record by 2005.

Chris Brennan was Josh’s first jiu jitsu and MMA coach, raising him from white to purple belt. Hinger was part of Chris Brennan’s fight team in Lake Forest, CA. until 2006, a time when the group became disconnected due to personal issues inside the training room, as well as disagreements among team leaders. The combination of which, ultimately led to the academy’s demise.

After Brennan’s academy closed down, Josh worked with Baret Yoshida and Jason Bukich, earning his brown belt from the pair before joining Atos’ in San Diego. Working under André Galvao at Atos’ HQ, Hinger quickly earned the respect of the prestigious team reaching the rank of black belt on December 7, 2013.
