GIG: Ask A Black Belt w/ Alexa Yanes
Show Notes

 in this episode of AABB, Shama chats with black belt competitor and instructor, Alexa Yanes of Rodrigo Pinheiro BJJ in San Antonio, Texas!

She began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu 8 years ago and always knew Jiu Jitsu was something she loved to do, but had no idea where it would take her.

Yanes started competing as a white belt for the fun of it, but quickly became more dedicated at blue belt. She has traveled all over the world to compete, teach, and train. She is a multiple time IBJJF open champion at every belt, World no gi champion, Pan American medalist and Abu Dhabi Grand Slam medalist. She has been fortunate enough to make jiu jitsu her primary focus and loves spreading the knowledge of jiu jitsu for her fellow females. Her goal is to show the community it is possible to make a living and how to find opportunities in this sport.
