Karen Antunes


This female phenom exploded onto the scene in 2012 as a purple belt world champion and quickly demonstrated her dominance as she progressed to the rank of brown belt securing more wins and the world championships. 
After receiving her black belt in 2014, this CheckMat athlete went on to win the Five Super League tournament championship, and 3 IBJJF titles in both gi and no-gi, making her a dominate PLAYER among female grapplers.
Karen's ferocity on the mat is juxtaposed to her infectious smile and humorous demeanor.  Easy going, with a quick wit, she's a pleasure to talk with and share ideas.
Her game?  Basic she says.  On top or on bottom - how ever you play.
