    Does anyone on here know of any women BB's? I've never heard of one and would be intrested to know who they are? Do they spar the men BB's and hold their own? Who did they get their belt from? Just curious

    I think Leika Viera (sp) and Kyra Gracie are both BB. I sure they could more than hold their own with the guys.

    Yes, she is a black belt. Follow the link and look at the black belts. Renzo promoted her if I remember correctly.

    EDIT: I found the date, 9-28-2005.

    I dont know her name but there is a girl who comes to 10th planet and is a jean jacque black belt. I've never rolled with her tho but she'd likely kick my ass.
