JT Torres is one of the top-ranking BJJ athletes in the world today…
But did you know that his first love wasn’t Jiu-Jitsu – but skateboarding?
As a matter of fact, Torres is convinced that he would be skateboarding professionally if it wasn’t for BJJ.
He loves it that much, as he revealed in an interview with BJJEE:
If I wasn’t doing Jiu Jitsu, if I wasn’t in love with BJJ the way that I am today, I think that I would be doing one of two things.
Either I would be skateboarding professionally – that’s something that I’ve always loved and enjoyed. Or I would be in something that comes with it, like the sneaker world and fashion…
So, if I wasn’t skateboarding, I would be probably designing sneakers and be running my own clothing company or something like that.
Nevertheless, as soon as he was first introduced to Jiu-Jitsu, he fell in love with it instantly:
As a child, one of my first loves was skateboarding. I was into skateboarding for many years, but then I discovered BJJ.
And I got very serious with it, because I loved it right off the start.
