About me

Master Evans has studied the martial arts for well over 20 years. He started his training at a young age in Tae Kwon Do. As the years rolled by, he became interested in other styles of martial arts. Therefore, instead of studying one art he often trained in 2 or 3 arts at the same time.

Master Evans has official instructor ranking in, Tae Kwon Do, Jeet Kune Do, Hapkido, Capoeira, Beikoku Bushikan Karate Jutsu, Submission Grappling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in addition he is the founder of Modified Shooto MMA.

Master Evans is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt under World Champion 3rd degree Black Belt Rafael Lovato Jr. and is the only Austin Lovato Jr. Affiliate serving the South Austin, Buda/Kyle, TX areas.

“Diabo”???

Yes, my nickname is “Diabo” (pronounced Gee ah bo). This name was given to me in the tradition of the Capoeria system. My instructor Mestre Rodrigo “AXE” Zerlotti made a comment that when I spar or fight my eyes look evil…like the devil, from that day on I have always been referred to as Diabo.

It is tradition, with Capoeria, to receive a nickname (in Portuguese) that you are forever referred based on your fighting style, attitude, or mannerisms. Some people do not receive a nickname, I was honored to be recognized and to have an official nickname based on this tradition.
