Giavonni “Gia” Gutierrez started her journey at the age of 3 much like her brother Cruz did, but instead of going to mauricio Zingano’s gym she went to her own uncles with her father and brother. Although her uncles gym isn’t up and running anymore, she did a lot of the same body control movements on the side.
Much like her father and brother, she also wrestled for a couple years before she had to quit due to the inability to be taken to wrestling practices from her brothers high school wrestling.
Gia has currently been training Jiu-Jitsu competitively since the age of 6 and still continues to excel in her training everyday, not only by being in the classes but helping her brother with kids classes as an assistant coach. Gia is a huge help in the school and makes her brothers life much easier in helping demonstrate the curriculum.
