  • Second Degree Black Belt

Dominyka is a Lithuanian born multiple time World Champion who received her black belt from Marcelo Garcia and was the first female ever to receive her black belt under Marcelo. She became a consecutive World Champion, winning gold at blue belt adult Worlds at age 14, purple belt Absolute gold at age 15, and two brown belt gold medals at ages 17 and 18.  It was at Marcelo’s academy that Dominyka earned her belts from blue all the way to black. She was promoted to black belt in January of 2015 at the age of 19, becoming one of the few people to receive such a high rank at such an early age. That following summer in 2015, Dominyka went on to win her weight and absolute in the IBJJF World Championships, becoming the first rookie black belt to double gold, as well as the first and only European.  Dominyka also won double gold at black belt in 2016 at the IBJJF World Championships.  Dom is not only an incredible competitor, but is also a highly sought-after coach.  We are extremely honored to have her at UJJ for two months!
