Coach Gillian Davis

Gillian was a varsity-level athlete in both soccer and lacrosse in high school.  She joined Brazen Martial Arts in December 2011 to get healthy and improve her overall fitness.  Starting from 200 lbs, she decided to try a grappling tournament just 5 months later. Through hard work, discipline, and the support of the coaches at Brazen Martial Arts, she weighed in at 134.9 lbs and won her first gold medal. She has been actively training and competing since that time.
