Malachi Edmond Biography

Malachi Edmond was born on December 21, 1994, in Silver Spring, Maryland, United States of America, growing up in the neighboring Temple Hills area.

Edmond’s interest for martial arts sparked from watching his favorite Tv show, Power Rangers, which led Malachi’s grandmother to look for a combat sports school for her grandson. Lloyd Irvin’s Martial Arts Academy ticked all the boxes and by the time he was 5 years old, Malachi was signed on to the gym’s kids program, first through ‘Thai-Jitsu’ class and later, at the age of 7, streamlining his attention solely towards jiu-jitsu with coach Donnie Achnick.

As a blue belt, Malachi chose to pursue BJJ as his career, making it his #1 priority in life. His repeated success on the mats led to numerous medals in the sport’s top competitions, particularly in the USA East Coast, where Edmon’s impressive record made him one of the most feared light-featherweight competitors in the region.

His success on the mats translated to his progression through the belt rank system, and by June 2019, Malachi Edmond was promoted to black belt by the team leader Lloyd Irvin.
