Gabrielle Garcia has five gold medals from the last three Pan American Championships. Since 2010 she has continually placed at the top of her female divisions, weight and absolute and stamped her legacy in the middle of Jiu-Jitsu history. Being present in some of the biggest changes such as splitting the brown and black belt female divisions has given her the ability to be apart of something that will stand forever.
Other women such as Kyra Gracie, Luciana Dias, Beatriz Mesquita, Michelle Nicolini to name a few have made their mark along the years as well, claiming their golds at the Pan American Championships in great fashion.
As Pan Ams continues its reign as the largest Jiu-Jitsu tournament in the world and the competitor list grows, it’s important to make sure that women are represented well. More and more females are choosing to compete at the highest levels and in turn, we are making history. Don’t miss the opportunity to build something great along with Gabi and the others who have made their mark in Jiu-Jitsu history as we write it in 2013.
