Instructor Bios

At 20 years old, Anna Salome began training Jiu Jitsu as a college student at a women’s only class. The women fully embraced her day one and it changed the trajectory of her life. She fell in love with the sport and began training and competing consistently.

With the support of an amazing team and instructor, her 20s revolved around competing. At age 28, she received her black belt from Master Roberto Traven and began running the women’s class at her home gym – full circle achieved! Now at 33, she is a full-time working mama to her amazing 3yo son and a part-time badass BJJ black belt athlete and instructor.

Ginger Hines started training BJJ in 2007 at the same school where she earned her 3rd degree black belt in TaeKwonDo. After trying a couple different schools, finding no women to train with and facing impractical class times, she decided to stop training in 2011 and focus on her two kids.

In 2015, after a job change and move, she ran into a friend from the tournament scene, Denise Houle, who lead her to training under Professor Traven. Her love for the sport was rekindled. She trained through her 3rd pregnancy. She received her Black Belt in March 2021. Now at 45, She works full time as an ER Charge Nurse, trains 3 days a week and raises a 4y old daughter! She competes when she can and hopes to do even more as her daughter gets older.
