We’re looking forward to seeing some amazing ladies represent at the upcoming BJJ BETevent in Sao Paulo, this weekend, February 28th.
This is a special “SELECTION” Grand Prix of the top 12 females athletes that received the most votes on Instagram (and hold the most titles).
Vitória Assis is an 18-year-old purple belt from the Double Five in Rio that made it to the top of the picks as the second most voted of the GP. Vitória trains under master Bruno Formiga.
Her major accomplishments include IBJJF South American titles and AJP Pro Tour International Pro titles.
Maria Claudia from, TMD House social project in the City of God, is a 17-year-old with a dangerous guard. Maria trains with world champion Gabriela Pessanha and is expected to spare no effort to claim her spot at the top of the podium once again.
Her coach, master Marcio de Deus, is known for taking his squad around the world, and Maria has taken advantage of every opportunity. She has already claimed gold at IBJJF Worlds, Brazilian Nationals, Rio Open, IBJJF South American Championship, and AJP Grand Slam.
Julia Alves, old brown belt Julia under masters Julio Cesar and Edson Adriana in Rio. Unlike the others, Julia was selected after evaluating her resume. She’s only 20 years old but has still claimed major titles like IBJJF Worlds, IBJJF Pans, IBJJF Nogi Brazilian National, and IBJJF South American Champion, Abu Dhabi World Pro, and AJP Grand Slam.
