Richard Alarcon Biography

Richard Alarcon was born on November 9, 1990, in Montclair, California – United States of America, growing up in neighboring, Lakewood.

Connected with sports from a very young age, Alarcon first joined a jiu-jitsu class at the age of 7, after being told he was too physical to play football (soccer). Alarcon joined Francisco Bueno’s Academy for 3 years, switching to wrestling at the age of 10.

Alarcon competed in wrestling throughout the school system, for 11 years, reaching the Division 1 of the famous National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), playing for the well known Citadel Bulldogs (Charleston).

After he completed his studies, 21-year-old Richard rehashed his interest with jiu-jitsu, while also joining Thai boxing classes with the intent of competing in MMA, making his amateur debut in 2013, and turning pro in 2015.

With time, much of Richard’s focus turned back to nogi grappling, competing extensively in jiu-jitsu while climbing the belt ranking system under the guidance of Givanildo Santana. With important medals in a wide range of rulesets, Alarcon would earn his black belt in May 2019.
