2. Hannette Staack’s Biography
Hannette Staack is a 5th-Degree BJJ Black Belt under Andre Negao Terencio. She is 3 times Brazilian National Champion and 8 times IBJJF World Champion. She is an IBJJF Hall of Famer and associated with the Brazil 021 School of Jiu-Jitsu. Along with her husband and coach, Andre Negao Terencio, Staack instructs BJJ techniques to women.
2.1. Hannette Staack’s Early Life
Hannette Staack was born on 7 February 1979 in the northern area of Brazil, São Luís do Maranhão.
2.2. Brought up in Rio de Janeiro
Though Staack was born in São Luís do Maranhão, she was brought up in Rio de Janeiro. She was only 2 years old when her family moved to Rio de Janeiro.
2.3. Started BJJ Training
Staack started her BJJ training when she was 18. She was an athletic child from the very start. She was good at rock climbing. Her friend introduced her to BJJ. She was told that she has good grips and with such strong grips, she would ace in BJJ.
That is how she learned about BJJ and then started it in 1997.
2.4. Trained under Fernando Cruz
Staack trained under Professor Fernando Cruz. Staack already had really good and strong grips because of rock climbing, that is why her BJJ game is so exceptional. Staack trained not only under Professor Fernando Cruz but also Master Flavio Figueiredo. But Master Flavio only supervised Staack’s training.
In an interview Hannette Staack said:
“Fernando opened the door for me to BJJ, he gave a 50% discount on the first month to train at his school”.
It was hard for Staack to train in BJJ as she was not financially strong. That 50% discount made BJJ learning easy for her and she loved her coach for that particular reason. She also received a full membership after only 1 month of training.
2.5. Andre Negao Terencio - Hannette’s New Coach
When Hannette Staack became a Purple Belt, Professor Fernando Cruz left the academy and said goodbye to his BJJ teaching career. Staack became disheartened as she thought she wouldn't find a good instructor. Luckily Master Flavio Figueiredo introduced her to Andre Negao Terencio, her new coach who later became her husband.
2.6. Inspiration Behind Hannette Staack’s Fabulous Game
In an interview, Staack said that her inspiration behind BJJ is her coach Andre Negao Terencio. When she came to train under Andre, she just became a Purple Belt with not sufficient BJJ knowledge. It was Andre who refined her and made her a World Champion. Staack’s drive and focus made her extremely vigilant toward BJJ.
2.7. Suffered From an Injury
In 2005, Hannette suffered from an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury. Her meniscus was completely damaged and she had to take a long break from BJJ. At that time Staack sought physical therapy. She was able to practice and compete after 3 months.
The knee injury turned out to be beneficial for Hannette as she had to completely change her BJJ game. She had to learn new ways for the application of BJJ techniques. Her BJJ knowledge was enhanced to a greater degree.
2.8. Left Job For BJJ
Hannette was so passionate and enthusiastic about BJJ, that she even left her job to train full-time. Her passion for BJJ was on another level. She was called crazy for leaving her job as it was difficult for a woman to make a living from BJJ even in Brazil.
2.9. Brazil 021 School of Jiu-Jitsu
Hannette Staack along with Andre Negao Terencio and Carlos Henrique, founded Brazil 021 School of Jiu-Jitsu in Brazil. She is a women's BJJ instructor there.

4. Hannette Staack’s MMA Career
After having a successful BJJ career, Staack wanted to try something new. Before her 42nd birthday, Staack had decided that she would compete in MMA.
“I wanted to do something to challenge myself. Since I already have a few titles in Jiu-Jitsu, No-Gi, and the ADCC, I didn’t see much sense in entering more tournaments, except for super fights. I came to Brazil to train with a friend and this possibility was presented to me.”
Staack has been fascinated by martial arts ever since she entered the competitive circle. She likes to try new things that is why when she suffered from a knee injury, she adopted a new style of fighting. She gets kicks by trying new ways for the finishing of the same fighting techniques.
Staack trained under coach Andre Pederneiras for her MMA debut.
“Something that I’ve always wanted to do but women’s MMA wasn’t so popular back then. Life has taken me to a different path of education, building a gym and having students, but after doing a lot of thinking, I saw it was a good challenge.”
“That’s exactly what I want, to challenge myself in a different form, so I thought of doing one MMA fight this year. I need to work on my boxing and kickboxing, so I’ll focus on that. Not that I’m going to change my characteristics, but I’ll train to become more complete as a fighter.”
