Although I've shifted my Olympic weightlifting focus, I know it helps me as a grappler and I was happy to get back to lifting this week.
I have a short break from school, and I'm taking the time to up my intensity and have fun with my training.
Last Saturday I competed in the New York Open and lost my very first match to a guy who beat me two years ago.
This was a lighter training week due to school, sickness, and preparation for the Boston Open next weekend.
Since I began competing in combat sports, this is the least technically, physically, and mentally prepared that I have ever been.
With its ornate embroidery and high quality construction, the new gi from Tatami is a perfect choice for female grapplers.
2014 has gotten off to a rocky start, but that's not going to stop me from competing in BJJ and Olympic weightlifting.
Last Saturday I had my second competition of the year. My very first match went about 4.5 minutes until I submitted from injury.
I’m tired of trying to make random gear work for BJJ. Fortunately the Datsusara Gear Bag Mini came along, and it's perfect for the BJJ lifestyle.
If you’ve ever been to a muay Thai gym, you may have wondered why everyone has such huge gym bags with them. Today, I will expose the long list of mysteries that lurk inside this bag.
This was a week of ups and downs, but stepping back now, I realize the little negative things that happened were nothing in light of all the good things going on in my life.
This was the last week of training before my next tournament, and I feel confident in the progress I've made since my last competition.
