Instructor Bios

Monica Allen began her martial arts journey at the age of 15 with Taekwondo. Through the years, she has studied and coached Capoeira, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. She was introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in 2010 by Robby Rabadi in Austin, TX and recently earned her brown belt at Fulcrum Jiu Jitsu Academy, under Evan Barrett, after finishing 2nd at the 2021 IBJJF Master World competition. Monica is an audiologist and elementary special education teacher. She loves working with kids and teens!! Outside the gym, she has four kids of her own, spends a lot of time with her second family in Haiti and loves to be outside hiking and exploring beautiful Colorado.

Professor Jill White got bit by the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu bug in 2011 and was immediately hooked! Jill earned her black belt in 2021 under Robert Drysdale and is the first female black belt from Fulcrum Jiu Jitsu Academy. Her love for the sport prompted her to compete at some of the highest levels in Jiu-Jitsu! Her accomplishments include: 2015 IBJJF Master World, finishing 2nd in Divisions and Absolutes as a blue belt, 2017 IBJJF Master World Champion in Divisions and Absolute as a purple belt, and a 2018 IBJJF Master World 2nd place finish in her Division as a brown belt! Professor White will confess that “Jiu-Jitsu has become such a staple in my life that I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.” She enjoys sharing her passion for BJJ and meeting new people. She really enjoys spending time with the kids (they love her puppy, and honorary school mascot, Rocky too).
