Kaniela started training Martial Arts when he was 6 years old. His first sport was Judo and although he played a lot of sports at the age 12 he found two things that he would be forever passionate about Football and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. On the field he earned first team all conference honors, and on the mat he made the podium at just about every tournament he entered. More impressive then being a very succesful multi sport athlete, Kaniela held a 3.95 GPA all through out high school and graduated with honors.
After High School Kaniela shifted his focus to Jiu Jitsu and college. He is currently enrolled at Cal State East Bay, teaches at Mindset Martial Arts and trains at the Caio Terra Academy in San Jose!
A winner on the mats and in life, OSS is proud to sponsor Kaniela Kahuanui
