Upbringing and grappling training
Professor Combs was born in Cleveland Ohio and raised in Agoura Hills, California. He started his illustrious wrestling career at fourteen and finished just before his jiu jitsu journey began in 2010 at Easton Training Center. He continues to grow with his community at the Boulder location. More on John and his grappling achievements can be found here.
John’s Day to Day
When John isn’t preparing for/participating in the highest level of BJJ competition, he is diligently studying grappling instructionals and sharing his knowledge/perspective with his students at Easton Training Center.
John graduated from University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in integrated physiology. John can also eat an inhuman amount of food when he sets his mind to it. He’s also the self-proclaimed “Colorado’s best Jigglypuff” when it comes to Super Smash Bros.
Pearls of Wisdom
I had an opportunity to sit down with John and discuss the finer of competition and its benefits. On this subject, John had many things to say, but the main takeaway was competition settings provide unprecedented room for growth. So get out there and see what you’re capable of!
