Athlete Spotlight: Tyler Shew

We’re excited to introduce another one of our sponsored athletes, Tyler Shew (@asian_bad_boi). 

Tyler is from Sunnyvale, California, and has been training in martial arts for 10 years. He started off doing MMA for the first 4 years of his training, but later found his true passion in BJJ. He got his brown belt a couple months ago and continues to work hard every day.

His typical schedule includes BJJ competition classes for 2 hours daily Monday through Friday, regular 1 hour BJJ classes 3 evenings a week, and lifting weights 2-3 days a week for an hour.

Tyler has an impressive competitive record. He placed third at the 2021 pan championships, third at the 2021 no gi world championships, and second at the 2021 world championships. 

Aside from his own training, Tyler works part time as a coach - he teaches group fitness and BJJ and offers private fitness and BJJ sessions as well.

Yup, Tyler is pretty cool. His dream is to win the IBJJF world championships someday and take himself the farthest he can go in the sport. We’re rooting for him!
