Jiu-Jitsu Focus: Fabiana Borges

Its 2012 – Have you started training for this year’s tournament season? Fabiana Borges has.

Fabiana started Jiu-Jitsu when she was eleven. She attended a Jiu-Jitsu school for underprivileged youth in Rio de Janeiro led by Professor Fabiano Gaudio. She fought in her first Worlds at fourteen. She’s won two world titles since, as a blue belt in 2004 and as a purple belt in 2005.

In 2010 she won her first Pan Ams against Michelle Nicolline. Pan Am gold followed again in 2010. But Gold at the worlds would elude her when she lost to Bianca Ribeiro. Last year Fabiana got a gold at the American Nationals, silver at the Pan Ams and bronze at the Worlds losing by points to Kyra Gracie.

Fabiana has moved to Austin Texas and is teaching at Gracie Barra North Austin. She is working towards developing a strong women’s program.
