Black Sheep Athletics

It’s been an insanely promising start to the year over here in Berlin and this week, things got even better! I am so excited to announce Black Sheep Athletics as one of my new sponsors for 2017! When I moved to Berlin I was pleasantly surprised  by the popularity of Crossfit within the city.  Countless boxes appear […]

2016 – injuries, moving countries, and the times I wanted to quit.

It’s no secret that this year has been more challenging than the first two I had spent abroad.  But when everything happens in so many small, unconnected incidences, it’s quite confronting when someone forces you to look back at the challenges you’ve faced. I always try to be positive and move forward – always looking […]

Adjusting to Berlin

There should be no surprises when I say that moving back into the Western World was not without a little reverse culture shock.  It has, however, surprised me by the things that have taken some adjusting to and the things I am really enjoying! Drinking tap water should have been the greatest thing in the […]

The new kid on the block

In my experience, especially with grappling and MMA, every gym has a different style and program.  Most of what I know I have learnt through tips from other people or from watching fights on TV.  When everyone is on the same program it puts you on par with other students.  This recent change in gyms […]

Gravity Float

For the longest time I was watching my friends (particularly in America and Australia) post about their gravity float or sensory deprivation sessions.  I knew a little about it from listening to a Joe Rogan podcast but had resigned to the fact that probably would not have access to, living in Thailand. We lucked out here in […]

Waking up and realising you’ve become a BJJ girl

I always liked to dabble in jiu jitsu.  It has often been a welcome break from my striking training, and a large number of my friends back home are grapplers, so it was a great way to spend time with them and have a little fun in between fights.  (pajamas and cuddles!  I mean, c’mon!) […]

Saying farewell to Thailand

Recently I made the decision to leave Phuket and move to Berlin.  I’ve received an overwhelming number of messages that I have not had the time to reply to yet but I am very grateful to everyone for their well wishes and support. Leaving the land of Muay Thai was not a decision that was made lightly. […]

The reality of “living the dream”

When I went home for Christmas last year, I’m not going to lie, I was tempted to stay.  The lull of the beautiful beaches and sunsets had lost its fade and I was missing having some consistency in my life.  I get homesick – A LOT.  I watch my fight family at home kicking goals […]

Why being single in Thailand is like admitting you pick your nose and eat it

It has always been an interesting topic for me because for the longest time I always had a boyfriend… then my personal life completely flipped to the other side where I had been single for the longest time and I was getting to an age that people were starting to question why I was still […]

Fight 20

Fight 20 came around quickly and saw me rematch WPMF and WWBA World Champion Farida. After an exciting first match up, the promoters at the Chalong Stadium were eager to have us back on their biggest show for the year. Naturally I welcomed the opportunity, although I would have liked a different match up in […]
