The Moments

I started grappling (submission wrestling) no-gi (no uniform), January 2009. I competed in my first grappling tournament with just four months of training. I had three matches and won all but one with a submission. I remember my first match as my name was called, my heart was racing and all I could of was ‘this girl is going to kill me’. My heart raced as the clock was set and the match started with a friendly hand shake. In that single moment I was like a greyhound released from the gates and the switch was flipped. If I say that grappling comes naturally then I sound flippant, but the truth is… I was born for this sport. I live for these moments.
