Kjetil Lydvo Biography

Kjetil Lydvo was born on January 1995, on Norway’s West Coast, in a small village called Voss, where he spent his formative years.

Growing up, Lyvdo enjoined uphill mountain running, a popular sport in Norway, given its mountainous landscape, in which Kjetil competed in his mid-adolescence.

Another activity enjoyed by Kjetil in his youth was boxing. The young Norwegian started at the age of 10, and maintained a steady progress all the way until he found jiu-jitsu, in his late teens, competing in the ring at a local level.

When he was 17 years old, Lydvo heard of a new martial arts gym that had opened in his town. Despite his gut reaction to mock kimono wearing martial arts, during the autumn holidays that year, he decided to pay that gym a visit as his boxing academy was closed during this period. During his trial period, Kjetil was able to try Brazilian jiu-jitsu and immediately fell in love with this combat sport. Shortly after he quit boxing to pursue BJJ instead.

Andre Fievel was Kjetil Lydvo first jiu-jitsu coach.A member of the Frontline Academy network, Fievel was the head instructor of a Frontline satellite gym in Bergen and would travel to Voss a couple of times per week to Voss to coach in the neighboring city. In his absence Jason shields (the founder of the gym in Voss) would lead the classes there. It was under this schedule that Lyvdo earned his blue belt.

After earning his blue belt, Kjetil Lydvo moved to Oslo, where he became a student at the Frontline headquarters, under the guidance of team leader Eduardo “Teta” Rios. Lydvo conquered all subsequent belts from Teta, including his black belt.

Lyvdo’s black belt promotion ceremony took place on January 06, 2023.
