Meet the Josei Heishi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team!

Fully Sponsored Athletes


Sponsored Athletes - Jessica Feliciano
Jess Feliciano is a newly promoted purple belt under EBI vet Mike Padilla. What started off as a hobby to keep herself busy in 2015, has blossomed into the jiu jitsu lifestyle she praises now.

One of her most recent and major accomplishments has been reaching the finals in the first ever women’s Submission-Only tournament of Finishers/Show The Art. It is safe to say she loves No-Gi and the leg locks that come with submission grappling. She loves traveling with her boyfriend who also trains and competes, which makes it easy to put a lot of time into jiu jitsu. They share the goal of competing at IBJJF-Worlds every year until they become World, ADCC, and EBI champions.

You can catch her at most open mats (especially the Josei Heishi open mats) visiting gyms in her reach, encouraging women to compete and making friends out of her opponents. Josei Heishi is a huge part of her competition preparation, but don’t be fooled, this girl laughs and dances awkwardly during most of her training sessions.
