James Hidalgo

James Hidalgo is the Founder of Infinite Martial Arts that he started in 2011. After training in Taekwondo for the past twenty years, both as a professional athlete and while serving in the US Marine Corps as a non-commissioned officer, he decided to take his passion to the next level by opening up his own business. His passion for the sport has helped him build up a successful business that is able to help children and young adults develop a stronger sense of self and confidence that is uniquely provided through athletics. The goal he had and continues to have for the studio is to share the sport of martial arts with his local community.

James has over two decades of professional martial arts and teaching experience. He currently holds a 4th degree Black Belt in Taekwondo and a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. James is also an experienced instructor in boxing, kickboxing and Muay Thai. He currently lives in the San Francisco Marina neighborhood to be close to his studio where he strives to serve his community.

Since the age of 7, health, wellness, recovery, and martial arts have always been a huge part of Gianni’s life. He started his training in Wushu while he was in elementary school in Singapore. While he was always active in martial arts and other contact sports such as rugby, and hestarted a strict supplement regime at a young age.

Gianni quickly learned that competitive training isn’t just about execution; it is also about your recovery cycles. Being aware of these factors will allow one to perform at maximum potential when needed.

In late 2005, Gianni moved to Shanghai, China, to further his commitment to martial arts, but instead found Hip-Hop and Capoeira.

Fast forward to 2011, Gianni moved to Northern California (aka the Bay Area) and started his journey in BrazilianJiu-Jitsu and mixed martial arts.He competed in over 30 tournaments and won multiple gold medals before receiving his brown belt in 2020.

Today, Gianni spends most of his time doing CrossFit while teaching weekly calisthenics and Jiu-Jitsu classes at Colhado Brazilian Jiujitsu. His teaching style includes educating his students about mindset, philosophy, strength, mobility, rhythm, and martial arts logic.

Gianni highly encourages his students to be able to mimic moves and make them their own.

Born in a Southern California I grew up playing many different sports, It wasn’t until I was the age of 13 that I found my passion for boxing. I’ve competed in amateur bouts all across California and continue to train and stay in fight shape. I want to help people reach their health and fitness goals while making it fun and exciting by adding boxing to the mix. Whether you goal is losing weight, building muscle or staying in overall shape I can program a routine to reach that goal. I’m excited to share my knowledge that I’ve gained over the years through my experience coaching moms, youth, elderly and everyone in between.
