Ashur Darmo

Ashur Darmo began his serious training in the different martial arts when he was first introduced by a friend in high school to wrestling.  This sparked an interest in other martial arts that propelled him to find the nearest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy.  At the age of fifteen, he began training Jiu Jitsu with an intense commitment to the point that he started competing nationally against adults at the age of sixteen.

Seven years later, Ashur received his Black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Thereafter, he moved to Los Angeles for one year to train under the legendary, Romulo Barral at world-renowned Gracie Barra Northridge Academy. Being exposed to the highest level of training and competition.

Ashur gained tremendous knowledge and expertise throughout his journey thus far as a black belt and he loves to share it with everyone in the Midwest, especially in Chicago.
