David Camarillo received his black belt in jiu-jitsu from Ralph Gracie. He also trained under World Judo Champion and four time Olympic medalist Mike Swain. After Camarillos terrorizing victories in both the lightweight and open classes at the RG American Jiu-Jitsu Association tournament, Rickson Gracie presented Camarillo with the prestigious award of Most Technical American Jiu-Jitsu Fighter. In Judo, Camarillo was Ranked #2 in the nation in 2000.
