My First Tournament – Asian Open Cup 2013

Today, two years ago, I started training #jiujitsu! The past two years have been quite eventful but there has always been one constant: John Pender & Nick Bismack @pridefcdubai (both heard in this video of course) Here are highlights from my tournament back in 2013 – Asian Open in Dubai three months after I started training #armbargirl #jiujitsu #pridefcdubai #sasteamdubai #bjjgirls #جوجيتسو

2015 Abu Dhabi World Pro

Abu Dhabi World Pro | I fought twice in my division and once in the open weight and got the bronze at 75kg. It was a really tough weekend but I learned so much from the fights I lost. I feel so privileged to have such great coaches @gz_vigilante @ramseye4 and to compete alongside my @pridefcdubai #SASTeamDubai teammates, my family and friends. What an experience! Thank you @uaejjf #WPJJC! On to the next: #Mundials #armbargirl

 

 

 

 

 

Silver & Gold In Sharjah Jiujitsu Open

Good experience in Sharjah! 4 tough fights.

I signed up to compete under 75kg as I currently weight 68kg. I was bumped up to the +75kg division and got silver after winning my first fight, losing the second.

I also competed in open weight category and got the gold.

It was a good experience overall, I learned a lot and it was a perfect test run for World Pro in April! I still have so much work to do! Big thank you to my coaches Cameron Knight & Eric Ramsey and my team for sticking around from 9 AM to 6PM to watch me compete!

Back to the gym, see you on the mat tonight.

My First Double Gold!

4 tough fights at the Abu Dhabi Jiujitsu tournament! I’ve never been more nervous in a competition, but the result was sweet: my first double GOLD.

Thank you so much to my great coaches Cameron Knight & Eric Ramsey for guiding me on my journey in this amazing sport. Thank you to professor Jorge Gurgel for all the encouragement and great advice. Thank you to my Pride Fitness family John Pender, Nick Bismack, Evan O’reilly, Karl Keller and of course my awesome teammates for helping me get good training in preparation for this tournament.

Back to the mat tomorrow evening

 

 

 

RAK Open Championship

My teammate Kath and I have been getting ready to compete in RAK Open Championship only to find out that we are each other’s only opponents fighting at 75kg. There are only two more white belt females fighting at 55 kg in the entire tournament so an open-weight fight is also unlikely.

bracket

Based on that – my teammate and I emailed the organisers UAE JJF to withdraw as we both see no benefit in competing in a different city when we are each other’s only fight.

That being said – I’m excited to get back to training! Can’t wait to have an awesome week of conditioning, BJJ, drills & running!!

I’ll tell you what got me excited about running again in my next post.

See you on the mat
