I’m multi-faceted and eclectic to say the least. I have trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2010. I’m also an Exceptional Education/Special Education Major with a minor in American Sign Language at Western Kentucky University (Go Toppers!!).
I’m currently indulging in my love for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and interest in MMA. I train as often as I can. My current goal is to medal in a World BJJ tournament both gi and no gi. I love chocolate w/ almonds and reading almost as much as life itself. I’m a blue belt under josh johnson/ luiz Palhares :).
As many of you know I pursued journalism but found that love for teaching surpassed my desire to continue the program. Nevertheless I’ve had incredible experiences as a journalist including working in Hyderabad, India for the World Association of Newspapers & News Publishers. I don’t like milk, cheese, the smell outside after it rains, or stagnation.
Currently I help teach a Women’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Class/Self Defense at Bowling Green Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If you’d like to know more about me just read my posts or You can follow me on twitter at Twitter.Com/ShakiaHarris.
I take jiu jitsu very seriously and train hard and often.
