Erica Walden holds a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Erica began her Jiu Jitsu journey in 2011 and has been an avid competitor from the start. Erica was in a serious car accident just 3 weeks after opening the doors to SOLFLO that caused her to put her competitive career on hold while she rehabilitated. It was during this time she fell in love with the teaching aspect of Jiu Jitsu. Now that she is healthy again teaching children is still her favorite thing about her journey, with competing being a close second.
Erica is in her 6th year of coaching and loves watching her students grow.
Erica is a decorated competitor and has preformed at a national and world level. Competitions include IBJJF, Fight to Win, Grapplers X and NAGA tournaments
