Jessa, who trains at Art of Jiu-Jitsu under Gui and Rafa Mendes also become their first-ever female black belt and the first person to go through the AOJ kids program from orange belt all the way to black belt. Quite the achievement at just 18 years old.
But for those who know who Jessa is, it’s pretty unsurprising when you list her achievements just at brown belt, where under the keen eye of the Mendes brothers, destroyed her competition. Jessa was also one of the most decorated coloured belts in the sport with 7 world titles, 4 gi, 3 nogi, 4 Pan American titles and 3 European titles.
This girl has a long, bright future ahead of her and we can’t wait to see her tear up the female black belt rooster weight division, which features both Mayssa Bastos and Serena Gabrielli. We can’t wait!
