Family And Parents
Evan is the only child of his parents, who were Judo athletes. In fact, his father almost made it to the Olympics if it wasn’t for a severe knee injury. His father now works at INSEP, and his mom is a Judo teacher.
Evan got the athleticism and fighting spirit from his parents. They were hardcore professionals and even played through injuries and the pain caused by them. His mom dislocated her fingers three times, and the same thing happened to his dad four times.
