Sufina Grajo, a 9-year-old from Cumberland, Rhode Island, may not appear threatening at 64 pounds, but seeing her fight demonstrates why she is regarded among the finest in the world.
Grajo stated, “I’m doing really well.” “In the entire globe, I’m number 15, 18, and under.”
Grajo began learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu two years ago and has swiftly amassed a string of victories over both girls and boys.
Jair Morselli, the owner of Taunton’s Brazilian Top Team, remarked, “She does pretty well.” “I believe she won our matches at the last competition.”
The Brazilian Top Team in Taunton is where the Rhode Island kid trains, and she has her sights set on an international competition in Florida this July.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Grajo added, “since the last time I finished third, then second, and now I’m wanting to win gold.”
Morselli described her as “very athletic.” “You’re teaching a position, and she’s eager to learn.”
Grajo stated that she began participating in the sport so that she could protect herself against bullies as she grew older.
She now aspires to be the best in the world.
“I realized that I can be quite strong and skilled, and that makes me feel great,” Grajo remarked.
