One of the great names of the new BJJ generation, Monique Elias quickly began to stand out in competitions. With natural talent for the sport, the former model developed an aggressive style and has been winning the main tournaments from her days as a white-belt. Promoted to black-belt in 2014 by two-time world champion Mário Reis -- her husband and coach, -- Elias dreams of conquering double gold at the 2017 Worlds.
In this shoot done by Talitha Cechet, the Alliance fighter was helped by Mário Reis in teaching a trick she uses in her matches to be able to finish opponents on the arm. So take a good look.
