Welcome to ArmbarGirl.com

I started training jiujitsu at Pride Fitness Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on 22nd July 2013 under Carlos Calderon Team Aranha Dubai and I’ve been hooked ever since!

Today, I’m a 3-stripe white belt under Eric Ramsey & Cameron Knight – SAS Team Dubai at Pride Fitness Centre.

My goal for 2015 season is to become a white belt world champion! I’m aiming for gold!! Double gold at the Abu Dhabi World Pro and double gold at the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship in Los Angeles fighting at 66kg.

I know it’s a tall order, but that’s exactly what I love about this: I like to set very challenging goals and do my absolute best to reach them. This has always been my strategy as a TV/Live Events Presenter and it has worked very well for me – so why not try it in sports as well!

I train jiujitsu 6 times a week and I drill as often as possible with my awesome teammates and I also do a fantastic conditioning class three times a week. I currently fight at 70kg so this means I’ll be dropping a weight-class, conditioning and training really hard to reach my goals.

On ArmbarGirl.com you’ll be able to follow my journey in jiujitsu from a 3-stripe white belt to hopefully a black belt one day.

From conditioning workouts, to drills to jiujitsu PT, jiujitsu group class and everything in between – you’ll see it here!

Get ready to see a lot of pictures and videos!

See you on the mat

    • Dear Mr. Robert I’m soo excited to hear from you! Your amazing son Jono and Pride Fitness Centre are such a big part of my life. I met Jono about 3 years ago and he has inspired me to do my absolute best in anything I take on whether it’s sports or work. I’ve been learning from him and training with him for the past 3 years and I always tell him this is by far my favourite thing about being out here in Dubai. Your son is amazing! I hope to meet you when you come visit us in Dubai. Thank you so much for your message it means so much to me 🙂
