Check out my interview on Fightworks Podcast!
If you don't know about the Fightworks Podcast, you should. The show has featured interviews with members of the grappling and MMA community for over 2 years now and making the broadcasts available online at http://thefightworkspodcast.com/. I was honored in December to have won their Best BJJ Blog of 2007 contest, and I was honored this week to be invited by them to speak about my experiences being a woman who trains. Here is the link to our conversation!
I'm glad the show does what it does, not only because I got to blab about myself, but because I'm increasingly coming to believe that it is the important for intelligent, articulate people to spread the word about grappling. In my experience, the majority of people who train are incredibly capable and could be doing anything they wanted to. But they choose grappling. They are amazing people and they make this art we study into the amazing sport/culture/lifestyle is. So thanks to The Fightworks Podcast for helping to paint a picture of the world of grappling and MMA that is more accurate, in my opinion, than the assumptions people make about who does this stuff and why (which usually run to the violent).
Oy vey. I guess I have become an evangelist.
Well, regardless, check them out--ALL their podcasts, not just the one featuring me. Thanks again!
