ABOUT VANESSA

Vanessa English is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and fights out of the UK. Vanessa is known for being the first British born Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitor to win the IBJJF World Championships in the adult division; this was back in 2013 at purple belt. Vanessa has represented the UK in various different countries across the world and holds many titles beneath her belt, including 7x British titles, 4x European titles and the purple belt world title.

Born and raised in a small market town to the East of England through the 90’s, Vanessa wasn’t exposed to the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu until later in her life. At the age of 16 Vanessa began practising martial arts; Capoeira for a short period and later on traditional Ju Jitsu, in which she practiced up until her 20’s.

When Vanessa moved to the Midlands, she discovered the art which would later become the centre point of her life, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Vanessa very quickly started to make a name for herself on the UK scene, relentlessly medalling gold at any tournament she could find. Vanessa strived to be the best, and so made the decision to dedicate her time to becoming a world champion.

With her destination set, Vanessa was able to focus her energies and took the World’s scene by storm, collecting three major titles that year. Now a black belt, Vanessa continues towards her goals as well as striving to be the best athlete and role model she can.
