Keven Carrasco Biography

Keven Carrasco was born on July 21, 1999, in Sacramento, CA., USA.

Drawn to martial arts from a young age, Keven opted against playing traditional sports and instead joined a kempo karate school at the age of 6, where he trained for about 2 years.

At one point, Keven’s brother joined a jiu-jitsu school, and it was watching his brother train and roll around with other friends that led 9 year old, Carrasco, to join his brother at André Glodzinski‘s grappling school in downtown Sacramento.

Carrasco remained at Glodzinski’s academy for the best part of 7 years, where he was graded up to his blue belt rank. At this point Keven joined the Waza BJJ Academy under Derek DiManno, although his time at Waza was short-lived as a few months later, Carrasco met coaches Osvaldo Queixinho and Samir Chantre at a tournament camp. The young California native knew the reputation of these two coaches very well and, after the event was over, he decided to join the coaches team, Ares (2017).

With his grappling career on the rise by August 2019, Keven decided to make the final leap of faith and move to Arizona to train at the Ares Headquarters as a full-time competitor and continue training under Queixinho.

Although 2020 was a terrible year for professional jiu-jitsu given all the restrictions imposed, worldwide due to the COVID19 pandemic, Keven still managed to pull off a very positive grappling season, taking home gold at the Miami Grand Slam and the Pan American Championships. His performances earned the young American athlete his black belt, a promotion led by Master Osvaldo Queixinho on December 14, 2020.
