Max Hanson Biography

Maximilian Hanson was born on April 22, 1998, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Interested in sports from an early age, Hanson started playing Football at age 7, an activity he maintained at a competitive level through his mid-teens.

At the age of 15, Max started training jiu-jitsu under Eric Marentette at Tecumseh Jiu-Jitsu Ribeiro, later adding mixed martial arts to his weekly activities. He competed in both sports (2 MMA fights) but, as a purple belt (2019), he decided to switch mainly to no-gi jiu-jitsu training.

As he transitioned to submission-grappling/no-gi, Hanson started training with Dante Leon, one of Canada’s most accomplished grapplers and an athlete whose path had been similar to Max’s early in his career. At Dante’s Adamas Jiu-Jitsu Academy, Hanson broke through as one of the hottest prospects in the sport, and, after two bronze medals at the IBJJF World No-Gi and Pan No-Gi Championships as a brown belt, on December 24, 2022, Max was promoted to black belt by his coach, Leon.

Hanson also trained extensively with Heath Pedigo at Pedigo Submission Fighting thanks to Dante Leon’s connection with the Illinois, USA, based team.
