Shelby Murphey Biography

Shelby Murphey was born on July 10, 2003, in Costa Mesa, California, USA, where she was raised.

Growing up Shelby was very active with sports and extra-curricular activities, first playing soccer for her school – where she was nicknamed “Bulldog” for being short and strong – and later following swimming and gymnastics at a recreational level.

Shortly after the Art Of Jiu-Jitsu school opened in Costa Mesa, Murphey’s parents enrolled her younger brother in the gym’s kids program. It was watching her sibling on the mats and how much fun he was having that sparked Shelby’s interest in the sport, eventually leading her to those same AOJ mats.

Under the supervision of coach Guilherme Mendes, Shelby quickly became a force in the sport’s lighter divisions at the kids and juvenile levels, a momentum she carried through to the adult categories. This excellent and constant good form earned Murphey her belts in quick fashion, eventually leading to her black belt promotion on June 2023.
