More About Sage Northcutt

TRAINING: I usually get up and go to the gym and grapple or wrestle for one of the morning classes. Later in the afternoon, I go to another gym and train with weights. At night, I go back and grapple more.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I started training at age four and competing at age five in karate/traditional martial arts. The sport karate circuits I competed in had point fighting and continuous fighting divisions, even for competitors as young as five years old. The reason I started training was because my older sister, Colbey Northcutt, who is also a black belt and multiple-time world sport karate and kickboxing champion, was competing and having fun, and I wanted to do the same. She was also Legacy’s amateur bantamweight champion.

What ranks and titles have you held? Third degree black belt in Taekwondo, third degree black belt in Kajukenbo, and a three-stripe purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu.

Do you have any heroes? Jesus Christ
