Kids Jiu-Jitsu Coach

Cristina Velazquez

Cristina Velazquez is a dedicated martial artist who holds a brown belt in Jiu-Jitsu and is thrilled to share her remarkable journey. Her venture into the world of combat sports commenced at the age of 16 through boxing. Guided by the late Joe Camacho, she encountered more than a boxing coach – she found a confidant who ignited her passion for martial arts.

Joe Camacho, a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu, persistently encouraged Cristina to embrace the realm of Jiu-Jitsu which she initially hesitated. Tragically, Joe’s untimely death deeply impacted her and illuminated her path forward. It became evident that she must honor his legacy by fully immersing herself in Jiu-Jitsu. This pivotal moment marked the start of her journey characterized by growth, tenacity, and honor.

In the last ten years, Cristina’s deep commitment to Jiu-Jitsu shines through active competitions and ongoing growth. Her background as a former preschool and kindergarten teacher, sports coach, and 4-year BJJ kids coach adds to her journey. This equips her with a unique ability to convey, motivate, and instill values like discipline, respect, and dedication found in Jiu-Jitsu.

Beyond her coaching roles, Cristina also offers private classes.
