Jasmine Rocha Biography

Jasmine Rocha was born on January 03, 2002, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, where she grew up.

Being the daughter of a lifelong martial artist and successful gym owner, Vagner Rocha, it didn’t take long for Jasmine to be involved with grappling under her father’s guidance. Starting at the age of 5, her involvement transcended to competition the following year.

Although most of her training was done at Vagner Rocha Martial Arts (VRMA), given her father’s close relationship with Miami’s Fight Sports team, during her development, Jasmine also trained extensively at the squad’s headquarters under the guidance of coaches Maggie Grindatti, Roberto Abreu, and Adrian Benavides.

During her high-school sophomore year, Jasmine decided to expand her grappling experience and join her school’s wrestling team, an experience that lasted for a year.

Jasmine was fully dedicated to jiu-jitsu from an early age and climbed through the ranks under her father’s guidance. Rocha’s hard work and tournament results eventually led to her black belt promotion on September 2022.

NOTE REGARDING JASMINE ROCHA’S RECORD

Traditionally BJJ Heroes has only accounted for adult black belt records as they signify an athlete’s entry into our sport’s elite ranks. Rocha, however, is a special case as she started competing in the pro-grappling circuit prior to her official promotion. This has left BJJ Heroes with a delicate predicament of defining when to start accounting for Jasmine’s match records.

Considering the level of opposition and the extensive list of professional athletes Jasmine Rocha overcame in events such as the ADCC Trials during this early stage of her career (2021 & 2022), we believed it would be beneficial to have these matches in the pro-circuit added on to Jasmine’s profile, despite them happening prior to her black belt promotion which happened on 09/2022.
