motivation for getting into shape and going to the gym was
to loose weight and sculpt a better body. One day, I
and a few of my friends from the gym decided to take a 'self
defense' course they started teaching at the gym.
Well, during the lesson, the instructor wanted to show me
how to get out of a hold but told me to do my best to
escape. He was choking me with his hands and although
I can't quite remember what I did to escape...I almost broke
his nose. We were both very surprised!
The self defense instructor advised me
to try kick-boxing since it would help make me more
flexible, increase my cardio endurance and help me loose fat
around my thighs. I did this for 8 months and enjoyed
it very much. However, the instructor had to leave for
Israel to fulfill his military duty. That's when I
gave up on the kick boxing. Then, another friend
introduced me to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the rest is
history...I've been doing it for 3 years now and although I
have not earned a belt yet...I basically do it for fun.
Although BJJ was very difficult for me
at first, the men I have met have been very encouraging and
have given me plenty of energy and determination to be
improve myself. And the most amazing thing is that I
can actually beat them on the mats!
During my sessions, I love to have fun
and tease you when I have you pinned down since there is
nothing you can do about it...to me this is very funny
