Brown Belt Instructor
Arnela received her BJJ blue belt from Roger Gracie in 2006 and her brown belt 2012 from W. Zapata.
Between 2006 and today, she has been competing and teaching around the world. She was a teacher assistant at Sport High School for 2 years in Helsingborg, Sweden, teaching BJJ and self defense (traditional jujutsu). Arnela has a black belt 2nd dan in traditional jujitsu/self defense.
When teaching BJJ to others, Arnela believes in emphasizing the importance of basics and the details that make this sport so beautiful.
