Professor/Sensei Yacinta Nguyen has been training martial arts for over 20 years. She received her Black Belt in Judo from Judo Canada in 2008 alongside Professor Dainis Nguyen. Yacinta also holds a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which she received from Professor Jorge Britto in 2017. She is incredibly experienced and knowledgeable in martial arts, specializing in the arts of Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Yacinta was on the Ontario Provincial and Canadian National Judo team for many few years winning numerous medals along the way. She also lived in Brazil for 8 months to train Judo with their elite athletes. She was on the Canadian National Team and lived in Montreal for 5 years to train at the National training center. Since transitioning over to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, she has been a force to be reckoned with and has won Double Gold(winning her division and the open weight division) at every single local competition she has entered from the Ontario Open to the Abu Dhabi Trials. 

Yacinta has competed at the most prestigious martial arts competitions in the world, the World Pro in Abu Dhabi and the IBJJF World Championships and has won a total of 9 medals(4 Gold, 2 Silver, and 3 bronze) at these competitions. She has already beaten some of the best female black belts in the world and still actively competes to this day. At the time of this post(March 2018), she is undefeated in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Canada and against all other Canadian competitors - she is Canada's best and we are lucky to have her teaching here in Durham Region serving Whitby, Ajax, Oshawa, and Brooklin. Along with Sarah, Yacinta is a great role model for all of our students especially our females.
