Sheliah Lindsey Biography

Sheliah Lindsey was born on July 17, 1996, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States of America, growing up in different areas across the country, with a couple of short stints in Singapore and Cebu in the Philippines.

Although sporty in nature, the constant relocation made it hard for Sheliah to stick to a particular activity for extended periods of time, although she did practice gymnastics for a number of years as a child as well as taekwondo in her early teens, and fencing.

After settling roots in Dallas, Texas, 17-year-old Lindsey finally had the chance to add some continuity to her training needs. To start this new phase in her life, Sheliah picked jiu-jitsu as her sport of choice at the Magness Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy, a team led by coach Michael Magness.

Under coach Magness’s guidance, Lindsey became more invested in the competitive scene of jiu-jitsu, particularly with the no-gi ruleset of the sport. Her sporting success, added to her hard work ethic – known for being on the mats 7 days per week and several training sessions per day – boosted Sheliah through the ranks, leading the Milwaukee native to earn her black belt in just 6 ½ years (2021).
