My name is Evan Cutts, and I am one of the co-owners, coaches, and active professional fighters at Fitness Fight Factory. I'm a Texas local and born November 24th 1990 in Fort Worth.
I started Martial Arts training in 2005 and have had over 25 mixed marital arts fights. My current professional record stands at 12 wins, and 4 decision losses. I have won two professional title belts in the Welterweight weight Class.
I received my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt in 2016 under professor Brandon Quick.
I started martial arts as a 14 year old because I have always loved stories and games about heroes. I was always fascinated with the power of courage and discipline to overcome evil in order to make life better for everyone. As an adult I see that it is important that good people have the internal and external capabilities to deal with obstacles in life.
After years of training and watching others train, it is apparent to me that the most practical way of learning martial arts for self defense and real character development is best taught through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing and Wrestling. All of those styles allow for competition, and competition is where skills are tested.
Outside of the gym my active hobbies are long boarding or riding a mountain bike. My nerd hobbies are playing physical games like Magic the Gathering, Warhammer 40,000 and some casual Dungeons and Dragons.
I’m a father to my three sons. I love that my boys are growing up in an environment that is going to make them emotionally and physically stronger. I would highly recommend all parents have their children learn real self defense in a setting they are allowed to compete in.
My favorite thing to eat after training is street tacos or Vietnamese pho. I like to get my food from one of the small restaurants or street vendors. I like supporting small business owners/ operators around the gym.
Being a martial arts coach is my purpose in life. I don’t think there is anything I would rather do than make my community stronger internally and externally. I really do believe that happiness comes with the confidence to overcome obstacles and use them as opportunities to rise above our current selves.
