Bio: Lolo started in Martial Arts at 8 years old. She had a very open minded Aikido teacher that introduced her to Judo, Karate and finally Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu through seminars. Now Laurence trains at NCU, in Paris, with David Pierre Louis and François Laurent.  She’s a police officer but she trains every day (or night), working hard in physical conditioning. Cousin wants to fight Kyra Gracie again in ADCC 2009.
