Victor started training martial arts in 2006, training primarily in Tae Kwon Do, as means of learning to protect himself and as a stress-relieving hobby. In the summer of 2008, he attended a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Seminar where he met Kroyler Gracie. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu changed Victor's entire approach to how one should protect himself. Being a smaller guy, Victor valued Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's approach to self-defense, in which through leverage and proper use of momentum anyone can protect themselves even against bigger assailants.
In the fall of 2008, Victor decided to train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu full time with Kroyler Gracie, and eventually achieved the rank of Brown belt in 2015. During his training career, Victor became one of Kroyler's instructors.
