biography

Becca’s athletic journey began in childhood, marked by her incredibly strong work ethic. Introduced to the martial arts when her daughter started training, she initially gravitated toward kickboxing and Muay Thai. Soon after, however, she immersed herself in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA, ultimately turning her passion into a profession by teaching at the academy.

Driven to test her skills, Becca achieved a notable 4-1 record in amateur kickboxing and Muay Thai. In 2006, she made a significant leap into professional MMA. Becca holds the distinction of being the first woman to compete in King of the Cage Canada, boasting an impressive 2-0 professional record. Additionally, in 2009, just under 20 years ago, she earned the rank of Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, becoming only the second Canadian female to have done so at the time.
