Seth began his martial arts training at the impressively young age of five, with Judo, and has been grappling ever since. By age 12, he was training with Paul Thomas on his way to multiple national junior titles in Judo. In High school, Daniels turned his attention to wrestling and eventually won the 2000 Texas State Championship as a wrestler within weeks of claiming the high school Judo championship as well.
After graduation, he moved to Colorado to pursue a career in Judo at the Olympic training center but found that injuries kept him off the mats. These small injuries progressed into major problems and caused Daniels to step away from judo for surgery and personal recovery time that ended up lasting six years. Eventually, Paul Thomas and Brandon Mullins convinced him to get back on the mats in a sport with fewer throws: Jiu-Jitsu.
While training most weekdays, Daniels was able to make some progress in BJJ and also decided to test the waters in MMA. He competed occasionally but ultimately decided that Mixed Martial Arts was not the right path for him. After hanging up the MMA gloves in 2006, Seth decided to get into the sport from a different angle by leveraging his business education to create his promotion, Fight 2 Win, which debuted in 2008.
While making the switch from a fighter to a promoter, Seth stayed dedicated to BJJ and continued to progress under David Ruiz. Eventually, his training found him under Amal Easton, a well respected Renzo Gracie black belt in his own right. It was Easton who presented Daniels with a black belt of his own.
In 2015, Seth decided to narrow his business down. Fight 2 Win had been promoting BJJ, MMA, and rock concerts under one banner but needed a change. He decided to convert the entire business and production quality spent on MMA and music shows to an exclusively Jiu-Jitsu venture, now called Fight to Win Pro.
