I am an average mother, wife, daughter and friend. I have been a life long athlete, always competetive and have always pushed myself to new sports. I began grappling at the end of January 2009, I remember thinking that it would take me forever to learn the ground game. The next day I was commited to making myself the best… I firmly believe if there is a will, there is a way and hard work always pays off. I competed at my first grappling tournament just four months into my training, I took 1st place. I went on and won a few more tournaments and left the tournament scene in 2010, also ending my MMA career. This blog is to document my will and passion to follow my dreams in Jiu-Jitsu.
