Emily Fernandez Biography

Emily Fernandez was born on February 7, 2002, in Midland, Texas, United States of America, where she grew up.

Sports played an important part in Fernandez’s upbringing as a way to give focus to her life after she was diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Emily practiced a variety of activities as a child and in junior high school, but never settled in any for too long up until the moment she found jiu-jitsu.

The first martial art experience of Fernandez was judo, which she practiced for a few months before the classes ended due to the gym closing down. She would return to grappling, through BJJ at the age of 11, on October 2013.

Fernandez’s first steps in jiu-jitsu were taken under the supervision of coach Bruno Bastos – a renowned instructor in the Texas region – quickly becoming recognized as one of the ascending competitors on the junior and juvenile scene.

Emily worked with Bastos from white to black belt, climbing quickly through the ranks thanks to her outstanding performances in the sport’s top tournaments. She received her black belt rank in a promotion that took place after her brown belt silver medal performance at the IBJJF World Championships in June 2022.
