Kristina Barlaan

Kristina Barlaan is 2nd degree black belt under Professor Caio Terra. Starting her Jiu-Jitsu journey in October 2007, Kristina had no previous experience in martial arts until she started Muay Thai in October 2006. Until that time, she had dedicated a considerable amount of years in the study of dance and performing arts. Jiu-Jitsu quickly became a passion and tool to help Kristina feel empowered and confident. With her first tournament in June 2008, Kristina fell in love with competition and has been able to create an impressive resume of wins and titles throughout the years and belts. Her proudest achievement though was the creation of INSPIRE, an open mat event that was made with the intention of building and strengthening the women’s Jiu-Jitsu community. Kristina strongly believes in using our voices and gifts to help elevate those around us. She is an advocate for mental health awareness and she hopes that by living her life with passion and purpose, she can inspire others to do the same.
