Yigit Hanay Biography

Yigit Hanay was born on August 30, 1999, in Istanbul, Turkey.

Invested in martial arts from early in his life, Yigit started judo at age 10. A sport he competed in extensively, earning 4 Istanbul City championships and his black belt rank.

In 2016, 16-year-old Hanay joined a local jiu-jitsu academy affiliated with Carlson Gracie Junior, under the guidance of Cağlar Yazman, where Yigit remained until his purple belt. As he reached the lilac rank, he joined Arturo Wesson, a black belt under Renzo Gracie, where he started dedicating more of his attention to the no-gi ruleset.

Yigit Hanay eventually opened up his franchise of the Renzo Gracie Academy in Istanbul and earned his black belt on December 7, 2023, from his instructor, Mr. Wesson.
