Youngseung Cho Biography

Youngseung Cho was born in Seoul, South Korea, on May 18, 1993.

Living an active lifestyle from a young age, Cho practiced a number of sports but found his love for martial arts through taekwondo, a national combat sport that he started as a child, later, during middle school he added jiu-jitsu to his weekly activities by the influence of Dong-Hyun “StunGun” Kim’s performances in the UFC’s Octagon.

Cho’s first instructor was Changuk Jung, a figure who became of the utmost importance in Youngseung’s upbringing inside and outside the mats.

His skill set, being a black belt in taekwondo, and a solid grappler, led Youngseung Cho to attempt a career in MMA during the mid-2010s, which he ended with a 5-1-0 record in 2017.

Once he decided to no longer focus on cage fighting, Youngseung returned to jiu-jitsu in time to earn his black belt from Changuk Jung (2018), Cho’s instructor, from white to black belt.
