Vanessa English fight history

  No Fight Results Found  

Vanessa tells Awakening, “I began practicing martial arts at the age of 16. I wanted to train martial arts purely for the self-defense element, and at the time I also wanted to take dance classes, which is why Capoeira appealed to me so much, with it often being practiced accompanied to music. It was during my travels in Italy (to a Capoeira summer camp in the middle of the mountains of Tuscany) that somebody was demonstrating traditional Ju Jitsu – I went to a class just a few days after I arrived home. Traditional Ju Jitsu introduced me to other disciplines, one being Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Well, I caught the BJJ bug, committed myself from then on, and lived happily ever after!”
