Leticia Ribeiro, Beatriz Mesquita and Carol Vidal inspired younger generations of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu grapplers at their recent camp.
If you missed the Leticia Ribeiro Women’s Grappling Camp (not to rub it in), but you REALLY missed out. The camp was an eye-opening experience, an inside look into the inner workings of champs, and most of all, it was truly an uplifting experience for women and girls of all ages and skill levels. Sixty women and girls from 26 academies traveled from all across Texas and Oklahoma. One woman traveled from as far away as Puerto Rico to participate in the Leticia Ribeiro Women’s Grappling Camp in Arlington, Texas.
