About the Coach:
Professor Diana ("Professor" meaning "Teacher" in Brazilian Portuguese) has been in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community for 20 years. Over this time, Prof. Diana has taken part in the growth of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Canada and is one of the first female pioneers of BJJ in Western Canada. For the majority of her jiu jitsu career, she has been the sole female in her academy training mainly with men. While this experience set her foundation, it also gave her drive to pave way for women and girls. She believes in BJJ for all.

She is an advocate in the trauma community, passionately advocates for safe, healthy, and empowering health practices, represents women in a male-dominated sport, and is a proud mother to 2 beautiful boys. Prof. Diana has also competed and successfully won many local and international BJJ competitions. She is passionate about building resilient communities and keeps it her mission to foster this sense of community within each class she teaches.
