Competitor Profile – Karla Shellhammer (Soul Fighters)


Describe who you are for those who don’t know you or your accomplishments.

Karla Shellhammer. I’m a wife and mother of two. I’ve been training and competing for three years. As a blue belt I won Master Worlds and NoGi Worlds twice in the Master 1 division.

Who do you credit for shaping your jiujitsu?

My husband has played a big role in shaping my game, but at this point I also would have to thank Tank Mendes and Igor Paiva, plus all of my Soul Fighters training partners.

How excited are you for this weekend?

I’m so pumped and just so ready to put on a show.

Why are you looking forward to being on this card?

This card is stacked with amazing talent so it’s just an honor being able to share the stage with so many legends of the sport.

How have you been training to get ready for it?

I’ve been training hard with my team and have also been finding every Jiujitsu girl in the DFW that I know can kick my ass. I’ve also been lifting twice a week and feeling very strong for this match.

What do you think of your opponent, Beth Williams (Lucky Jiu Jitsu)?

I don’t know her at all.

If you had to pick – win with the most boring fight in F2W history or lose with FOTN honors in the most exciting match ever – which would you choose?

Always lose with FOTN honors in the most exciting match ever. But to decision! Lol

Any predictions for this match?

I’m coming for my fourth win.

Anybody you want to thank?

My team always!
