You need to cut off every growth below the graft. It is very common in many grafted fruit trees for the graft to be much more vigorous and want to take over. You want the rootstock to put all it's energy into supply nutrients to the grafted variety and not growing it's own branches.

Here is our video on why people fail at avocado trees which has other helpful advice.
