JiuJitsu is a form of grappling (a pinning and submission style martial art). It draws elements from both Wrestling, judo and Japanese JuJitsu. Modern day jiujitsu is found in MMA which you can find in organizations like the UFC and Bellator.


Physiqyue Magnifique is proud to add Vonique Stricklen to the team as the Head JiuJitsu instructor. She began her JiuJitsu journey in 2009 while on deployment with the US Navy to the Persian gulf. After her honorable discharged, she moved to the Bay Area and continued her JiuJitsu training.


Von has had the privilege to learn from many instructors such as Alexander "Crispim" De Almeida who promoted her to blue belt, Carlos "Sapao" Ban who promoted her to purple belt and Darren Uyenoyama, who promoted her Black Belt in 2022 and whom she still trains with to this day.


Throughout the years, Von has taught JiuJitsu and competed in various competition venues. Von’s focus outside of being a JiuJitsu coach is Strength & Conditioning coaching and Mental Performance & Nutrition strategy guidance.
