Undefeated in singles competition, Dominic Garrini is all business when the bell rings. A no-nonsense combatant and decorated BJJ fighter who has gone on record that he has no respect for Lucha Libre nor the decorated double champion of South America in Zenshi.
Garrini can back up the fight in his words in the ring. Ice cold, calculated and quick to submit adversaries, “The Crippler of Canton, Ohio” is a feared and respected grappler.
Garrini is currently a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Chad Kuhn and James Clingerman. A veteran of over 200 Competitive Jiu Jitsu matches and holding countless gold medals from the IBJJF, ADCC, AGC, NAGA, Grapplers Quest and other organizations, Garrini is as real as it gets.
Originally from Atlanta, the tecnico Zenshi relocated a few years ago to South America on a journey of enlightenment. Now calling Santiago, Chile home, Zenshi reemerges in America as a transformed fighter.
Honoring the bushido code and balancing his fighting and training with the power of zen, the luchador is a peaceful albeit dangerous opponent.
Wearing a colorful mask, the high flying luchador is one of South America’s most popular fighting athletes.
Thrilling fans and overwhelming opponents with gravity defying attacks, Zenshi is South America’s premier luchador.
