Landrie Joseph Success Story
Landrie Joseph Success Story
Landrie Joseph an athlete.
A short introduction to yourself?
I am Landrie Joseph and I have been doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 6.5 years. I live in the Dallas Texas area and I am a member of the Soul Fighters team. I am almost 11 years old, I’ll be starting middle school in the fall, and I live with my mom, dad, and three dogs.
How did you develop your fondness for your sport and at what age did you start learning karate?
I started doing jiu-jitsu when I was four and a half years old. My love for jiu-jitsu comes from my coaches and how amazing they are with helping me through this journey.
What is your style and what rank do you currently hold in (your sport)?
My jiu-jitsu style focuses more on pressure passing in gi and no-gi. I am currently a solid yellow belt.
Do you have a favorite Sensei?
I have several coaches that I love, but they all help me in very different ways!
How did you get into this position and how did your journey in this sport go?
My dad encouraged me to try jiu-jitsu, and after joining and continuing to train, it was easy to fall in love with the sport. It is never easy, but my encouragement for everyone is just to keep training!!
Do you take sports as a profession or is it just a hobby?
Sports for me are a hobby; although, I love competing professionally! I also love doing movie theater-style makeup.
What challenges have you faced in getting to where you are now? You can also share any injury story.
The last year to two years have been pretty challenging. I had to change and evolve my game and work on things I was not comfortable with. With this cake lots of losses and competing against girls older than myself. At times this came with injuries, but the goal is to always recover, keep going, keep drilling, and eventually you get to master whatever it is you are working on. Every day is a work in progress.
What motivates Landrie Joseph most about her profession as an athlete?
Getting to the next level. Mastering a new skill, and realizing how far I have come keeps helping me push forward.
Do you have anything you want everyone to learn?
Jiu-Jitsu is an extremely humbling sport. One thing I learned the hard way is to never underestimate your opponent.
What tournament or match you have won are you most proud of and why?
I am super proud of my gold medal at the 2018 Pan Kids Championship. That was a huge accomplishment for me at the time being only 7 years old!
Also, this year I won my first Fight2Win match which was amazing.
