Sydney was born and raised in Houston, TX. She spent her adolescents playing softball and found her passion for Jiu-Jitsu when she was 18 years old. She is now a purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu and has been training for 8 years. Through her white and blue belts she competed frequently. Now, her main focus is on managing the Academy, but she has hope to get back on the competition mats in the future. She is also an Assistant Instructor in the Youth and Adult Gi Classes.
She strongly believes that Jiu-Jitsu changed her life. Without stepping on the mats and falling in love with the martial art, she would be completely on a different life path. Now she lives her dream everyday and she feels incredibly blessed to be able to do so. She is excited about her future in Jiu-Jitsu and learning more to continue along her Jiu-Jitsu Journey.
