Andrew Bacchus has extensive competitive experience and has recently emerged as a contender in the extreme forms category over the past two years. His first success was in the Kenpo forms division, where Bacchus has been one of the most consistent winners since NASKA adopted the event just a few years ago. He has successfully used his appearances on stage as a traditional competitor to give his performances in the extreme divisions more momentum. He secured his first NASKA overall grand championship with an extreme form at the 2019 AmeriKick Internationals.

Bacchus currently holds the rank of 3rd degree black belt in Kenpo, but is also pursuing a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In addition to being an active student of martial arts, he is also a great teacher who was named head instructor of his original studio back in 2017. In that same year, he helped the AmeriKick organization launch their Media Marketing Content Team that is still in operation today.

The International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation staged its Pan American No-Gi Championships in Atlanta, Georgia this weekend though with a field missing many elite grapplers due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The women's black belt competition could only muster enough participants to fill out two of it's scheduled seven divisions.

The men's black belt competition did see multi-time IBJJF no-gi world champion Lucas "Hulk" Barbosa capture the heavyweight class while ADCC world champion Kaynan Duarte took the super heavyweight class. The two teammates from the Atos squad then met in the finals of the absolute division but disappointingly opted not to compete against each other.
