Rishna Gracie

Rishna Gracie was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and is a member of the Gracie Family, known for the creation of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Rishna has always had a passion for service, public safety, and helping others to improve their lives. In 2013 she joined the Oakland Police Department and served the community for almost 10 years.

She worked patrol in a high-crime urban setting where violence and traumatic incidents were chronic. Prior to her career in law enforcement, Rishna attended graduate school at the Monterey Institute of International Studies where she specialized in Conflict Resolution and International Policy.

Rishna has acquired extensive practical experience in conflict management, de-escalation, and non-violent communication.
