Danny Etkin is known for his difficult tricking combinations that are a staple of his extreme forms and weapons routines. A disciple of legendary competitor Matt Emig, Etkin is a nunchaku specialist who prides himself on being able to spin his "chux" while performing inverted aerial techniques. His elite nunchaku work, creative hand combinations, and high-flying tricks have culminated in many world championships, including nine ISKA U.S. Open titles.
Etkin's competitive prowess has earned him additional opportunities such as endorsing a signature line of weapons by Century Martial Arts and being an Adrenaline Worldwide Pro Athlete. As an athlete for Adrenaline Worldwide, Etkin creates instructional content and regularly competes in tricking battles promoted by the company. He is also pursuing a degree in business at the University of Southern California to ensure his success continues beyond his competitive martial arts career.
