I am 28 years olds and from Lafayette, Louisiana . I am married with 3 children. My whole family trains jiujitsu on a regular basis. My husband and I run a swimming pools business. We found our gym Gladiators Academy of Lafayette when my son was being bullied at school. After 6 months of my husband and son started training my husband wanted me to learn self defense. I was very hesitant at first. It has been 4 years since I first stepped on the mats and now I couldn't imagine my life without jiujitsu.
