Edwin Najmi Wiki

Edwin Najmi was born on the 22nd of January, 1992 in Tarzana, California – United States of America. Edwin’s curiosity for combat sports came at a young age, being driven towards wrestling/judo by his cousin’s playful “beat downs” at the family house.

In looking for a place to learn some groundwork, Najmi found a Judo Dojo. The judo academy’s coach was of a Gokor Chivichyan (Gene Lebell) lineage and consequentially gave some emphasis to groundwork, especially on the Friday sessions, where the students would often remove the gi and train their submission game.

The Friday’s class became Edwin Najmi’s favorite session, and after one year of training judo/submission wrestling, Edwin opted to find a Brazilian jiu-jitsu gym, where the focus was the ground. Not far from his house was Romulo Barral‘s academy, one of the most acclaimed athletes in the sport. Najmi signed up to Barral’s Gracie Barra affiliate gym in 2009.

Romulo Barral soon understood he had a fantastic talent in his hands, and applied his vast experience in helping the young prodigy. 

Climbing up through jiu-jitsu’s belt system at full pelt, Edwin proved his worth on the competition scene with repeated wins at the top tournaments in the US. His fast climb in the sport earned him an invitation for the Copa Pódio professional event (2015), when he was a brown belt, defeating a well known black belt in Alex Cabanes at the country’s challenge by submission (RNC).

After the win at CP, Edwing continued in great form, winning the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship for the 3rd time, earning his black belt on the podium, on the 30th of May 2015, from the hands of Romulo Barral.
