Elena is a 47 year old competitive Blue Belt. (That is impressive!!) She trains at Foster BJJ in Kent WA Lotus Club!!
But what is most impressive is Elena's journey, after her fifteen-year-old daughter Carly died suddenly ,by some combination of miracle and necessity, she walked into a Seattle area Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gym and rolled for the first time in her life. Through that experience Elena discovered the healing in martial arts.
PLEASE take the time to read this! And her book "Flowing with the Go"
