In 2008, at 20 years old, she arrived to the United States, invited by her friend Miriam Cardoso to teach at Gracie Barra, a Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu organization with over 500 schools, in Washington. In 2010 she moved to California to work at Gracie Barra Head Quarters. She was then given the opportunity to teach at the Head Quarters for a couple years where she leads the Women’s Program.
She now operates and co-owns Gracie Barra San Antonio.

We met Fabiana through Couchsurfing and stayed with her for two nights. Little did we know we were staying with a world renown Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion. Seeing that we had an opportunity to interview such an esteemed guest we seized the opportunity.
In the show we went deep not into just Fabi's journey to Brazilian jiu-jitsu greatness but also the kind of mental toughness, work ethic and the transformation it takes to go from from athlete to coach. Fabi shares stories and examples of her ups and downs on her path. From her first day in the gym at 11 years old to how she seperates work vs passion. We know you'll enjoy this episode as much as we did!
