Ciara is a lifelong athlete who has a passion for coaching others to reach their highest potential. In the beginning, her sport of choice was running. In high school, she was a competitive runner who reached up to the national level alongside her team. Once the excitement for running wore off, she knew she needed to find a new outlet to feed her competitive side. This is when she finally began her Brazilian Jiu Jitsu journey. It allowed her opportunity to not only learn self-defense but also to fill her training with purpose. She has won many local tournaments. She has even graced the podium at a world level. Jiu jitsu keeps her hungry. She is currently a 3rd degree blue belt with the intention of eventually earning a black belt one day.
