Before ever stepping on to a collegiate wrestling mat, Dijulius made waves as the Ohio High School State Champion at 130 pounds… three times! He used this incredible achievement to attract scouts from major schools and was invited to join the Buckeyes in 2011, where he went 19-15 in his first season.
His sophomore year was much more dominant, with Dijulius wrestling to a 21-6 finish and was able to place second in several open tournaments at 133 pounds during that season. As a junior, he improved even further to hit his high of 80-8, while also qualifying for the NCAA Championships. That season, he also earned 4th place at the big ten championship, in which he had placed 6th the previous season. He looked to repeat his strong performance at the 2013 Cliff Keen Invitational, this time, coming in third at the prestigious tournament in Nevada.
Dijulius’ senior year started very strong, with a 6-0 record. Soon, however, the losses found their way onto the record and Johnni finished with an 18-9 performance in his final year at Ohio State. His highlight of that season was being named the Eastern Michigan Open Champion in his weight class with a 16-0 technical fall over Cord Coronado.
Since graduating from Ohio State, DiJulius has worked as a coach, first for Kent State and then for three seasons at Harvard. During that time, he helped Anthony Tutolo and Casey Sparkman achieve their dreams and reach the NCAA tournament.

Ty Mitch of Aurora and Johnni had a long history together after being friends and teammates in youth wrestling. In the six years they spent traveling the country together, they never imagined that they’d be competing for the Ohio state championship. In that match for the D2 State Title at 103 pounds, Mitch came away with the 4-2 victory after Dijulius had a takedown taken away from him as time expired.

Johnni Dijulius Injuries
In 2020, Dijulius broke his internet silence with an update. He posted a video of himself counting down a base jump gone bad, in which he misjudges the angle of his parachute and breaks his ankle to avoid smashing into the face of an intimidating-looking rock wall. This injury appears to be severe and will require some rehab before he is able to return to the mats or film more content.

Johnni Dijulius is not officially retired from competition, as he still competes in freestyle masters tournaments occasionally. Since graduating, however, he has focused more heavily on coaching and on building his brand as an online daredevil.

When he’s not filming stunts or coaching wrestling in-person, Dijulius also slows himself down long enough to create thoughtful and well-organized instruction. His efforts in “Systematic Wrist Exchange Attacks”, from BJJ Fanatics, are the perfect example. He puts his methodical, systematic way of thinking on full display as he walks us through the basics of attacking the wrist while hand fighting.
