My Journey

A Los Angeles native, Shlomo Levy grew up surfing the California coast from a young age, and was exposed to BJJ by a childhood friend. His passion for the two sports, along with other actions sports, evolved into a personal calling, which he carried intrinsically around the world, traveling through over 50 countries. "Levy" began shaping under the guidance of master shaper David Weber, while living in South Brazil and continuing his pursuit of mastery of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Combining his two passions, SurfJitsu has become the physical representation and embodiment of the principles he holds dear:  Freedom to explore, Independence in presence, Strength of mind and body, and Mastery to evolve.
