Teri Stewart began training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at BJJ Stapleton in 2009 after being inspired by watching her daughter excel at jiu jitsu competition and participate in the art. After observing numerous classes from the sidelines, Teri made the decision to begin her own jiu jitsu journey and has been competing and training ever since. Having assisted with the kids BJJ classes since BJJ Stapleton opened its doors, Teri has developed a knack for coaching kids and adults alike, helping them achieve success in day to day training and in the crucible of competition. Since 2013, Teri has been heavily involved in the Girls In Gis events held in Colorado, hosting two of the GIG-Colorado events as an instructor, and serving as an assistant instructor at a number of other GIG-Colorado events. Teri also serves as the head instructor of the Ladies Only Classes regularly held up at BJJ Stapleton.
Teri is an educator and teaches math (Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus) at the Denver Center for International Studies (grades 6 through 12). Prior to becoming a teacher, Teri worked for approximately nine years as a consultant for Accenture (formerly Andersen Consulting), out of its Chicago and Denver offices.
Teri is a graduate of Princeton University (Class of 1994).
