What started out initially as a hobby for Vanderlucia Barbosa turned out to be a 10 year journey discovering Brazilian Jiujitsu. She hails from João Pessoa in Brazil. When she started, she had no intentions of competing what more teaching. That all changed along the way. Since then, Professor Vanderlucia has competed numerous times at different stages of her training including the Campeonato Machado de Jiu-Jitsu e Submission João Pessoa and Campeonato Brasileiro de Jiu-Jitsu São Paolo. She recently made the transition from Boca Jiujitsu Team in Brazil under the tutelage of Professor Vagner “Boca” Guimarães to joining us here in Malaysia! She currently teaches our Brazilian Jiujitsu classes as well as one on one private sessions in Jiujitsu.
Her black belt competition achievements include:
- 1st Place on 1st Campeonato Machado de Jiu-Jitsu e Submission 2018 in João Pessoa-PB
- 1st Place category and 2nd Place absolute on Norte Nordeste de Jiu-Jitsu in Rio Grande do Norte-RN
- 1st Place on Recife open 2018 in Recife
- 2nd Place on Norte Nordeste 2017 in Natal
- 2nd place on Campeonato Brasileiro de Jiu-Jitsu 2018 in São Paulo-SP
