We have all heard the same BJJ rise-to-fame story. It usually consists of the same formulated components. Against the odds, rising through the grueling ranks. Competing in a multitude of tournaments and rising victorious countless times. The story usually stars a captivating human being who is Personality-rich, genuine and down-to-earth.
For Beneil Dariush, the components are the same but with heavy emphasis on the last detail. Beneil (Benny) began training three days after his 18th birthday. Training under Bruno (Mamute) Paulista at Ralph Gracie Anaheim, CA since the day it opened, Benny earned his brown belt in just three years, along the way winning multiple prestigious events which include: White Belt World Champion, Blue Belt Pan Am Champion, Blue Belt World Silver Medal, Purple Belt Pan Am Silver Medal (absolute), Purple Belt World Silver Medal, Brown Belt Pan Am Bronze, and Blue-Brown No Gi World Champion.
