Heidi Allen is the Beginner/Fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Instructor. She is known as a strong competitor and patient teacher. Students find her classes to be very helpful and not intimidating.
Heidi initially started her journey training BJJ in Philadelphia, and rediscovered it after relocating to Pittsburgh for carpentry work. Heidi started training with Brian Cowin, and within a few months she began to compete in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments. Competitions are considered very challenging, but Heidi handles them well. As an instructor at INPAX, empowering men and women is very important to Heidi. We believe she is going to be an important female instructor and leader in the greater Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community.
Since joining our program Heidi has won 9 tournament brackets and is an exceptional purple belt.
