Carlos Hernandez First got involved in sports around the age of 6 playing soccer in the Chicago land area. At the age of 8 I began training martial arts under Master Bob Schirmer and have been with him ever since. Along the way I began competing in various forms of martial arts such as muay-thai, boxing, wrestling, and pankration along with the jiu-jitsu and kickboxing I had already had begun. I graduated from Mount Carmel High School in the South side of Chicago where I played soccer, wrestled, and boxed; now I am a full time student at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and play on the men’s soccer team there. While I am at school I am training at Iron Works Training Center in Holmen, Wisconsin. When I am home I train at Combat-Do in Cicero, Illinois. Under the tutelage of Master Bob I have traveled to many places across the country and even the world to compete. Together we have been able to represent our little town of Cicero and our team very well and have been able to accomplish the following
