BJJ Black Belt, Founder & CEO at She-Jitsu
Jenn is a 1st degree Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt and is the Founder and CEO of She-Jitsu. With 14 years experience on the mat, 12 years have been dedicated to cultivating her skills as an instructor. As a blue belt, Jenn was one of the first to attend the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Instructors Certification Program and the Gracie Women Empowered Instructor Program.
Jenn’s work is highly influenced by Rener and Ryron Gracie. She spent many hours on the mat beside the two. She adapted a lot of the philosophies she learned through the Gracie academy and combined them with the mindfulness practices she established while going through her own healing journey in recovery from addiction and CPTSD. Jenn’s story has been published in magazines and news articles over the years, including Women in Business, Gorgo, and Meditation Magazine.
After her recovery from bulimia, she published her first book, “The Mindful Cookbook,” as a way to help others change their eating habits and lifestyle through conscientious eating.
After almost losing her life to trauma and addiction, Jenn was able to turn her life around and create a thriving life of beauty and abundance. With the odds stacked against her, she went to war with what she calls, “The enemy within,” and she won. She survived and is living to tell her story and help others fight the war within themselves.
Jenn travels to teach seminars and hosts retreats all over the world. More than just teaching jiu-jitsu, her goal is to guide men and women into confident versions of themselves. The focus is on improving self-worth, building confidence, and having power and control over their own lives. Through her mindfulness and trauma informed approach, Jennifer believes she offers a new perspective and empower individual growth on and off the mat.
Trauma Specialist & Babaylan (Filipino Shaman)
Polly is a Trauma Specialist with a focus in Alternative & Ancient Holistic Modalities. She has a degree in Sociology, which led her on the path to understanding traumas ripple effect on an individual and the people close to them. She studied Trauma Release under Dr. David Bercelli and Paul Darby, but went on to modify her approach using yogic practices and her ancestral gifts and abilities. She’s helped many Oklahoma City Firefighters and OKCFD who were working through on the job traumas and some that were part of the rescue teams of the Murrah Bombing. She studied at the Integral Yoga Institute in Coimbatore, India and their US ashram, Yogaville. Her yoga study is in meditation, pranayama, yoga asanas, Yoga Nidra (a guided experience that takes you into a deeper brave-wave state that can’t be reached through conventional sleep) and the Ayurveda approach to yoga practices. She was selected at the age of 5 to become a Filipino shaman, known in her culture as a Babaylan. She has the gift of foresight, tracing a person’s pain to their root causes, energetically freeing blockages in the body and mind, realigning a person’s spine, hips and pelvis without any physical manipulation, guiding others towards a path of healing, healing at a supernatural pace and expanding a person’s energy to help them raise their own which leads them to healing and releasing internal anchors and blockages. She went on to study and graduate from Institute of Integrative Nutrition in Bio-Individuality and Life Coaching to seamlessly blend her modalities, practices, focus of studies and gifts into an Intuitive Guidance and Healing coaching business.
