Brown Belt under Wim Deputter and Koen De Kleyne

Fran is a sports addict! She loves to move, train and get exhausted while doing so. In her BJJ game she tries to combine pressure work with movement yet she loves a great crushing cross face. Jiujitsu for her is the challenge of continuous learning and improving yourself with the knowledge you’ll never master it all. The pursuit of the impossible, the challenge is on.
