She finally did it! After all the ups and downs, trials and tribulations, heartbreaks, tough days, tears, hard work, dedication, discipline, sacrifice and grind, Danielle Alvarez is now the 2016 IBJJF Brown Belt Feather Weight Champion! Congrats to Danielle Alvarez on achieving what so many chase but few will ever catch! Read about and watch the awesome videos below to see how she Made History!
Danielle had 3 fights with 3 submissions!
Danielle won her Quarter Final match by Triangle Choke against a very tough Veronica Mayorga from CheckMat.
Danielle won her Semi Finals match by Bow N Arrow Choke against a very skilled Mylene Malano from Cascao Jiu Jitsu.

After coming up short of being a World Champion for six consecutive years, Danielle had to do something she has Never Done to Get something she Never Had! Danielle Burned her Ships so to speak. She took a semester off college, packed up and moved to San Diego, CA for 4 months to train with Coach Leticia Ribeiro and the Gracie South Bay team filled with other High Level female competitors.
Sometimes you have to Risk it All it for a Dream no one can see but You!
We Thank Coach Leticia Ribeiro, the entire Gracie South Bay Team and EVERYONE else that has helped Danielle along this long and tough road to Greatness! We appreciate everyone’s love and support! Congrats again to Danielle Alvarez on Not Giving Up, being Relentless and Making her Goal and Dream come True!
