The experiences of an amazonian, non-athlete navigating training "the gentle art".
Check out the "Business in BJJ" series HERE.
hahaha!Congrats on making the list!!Generally, I fall under the "not a girl" heading as well. I have been told that my boobs are not boobs, or that I am a man with no penis, or that I am a man trapped in a womans body.Don't I have the nicest friends? hehe And, I had to come back and add that my captcha word was 'osack'. It must have known what we were talking about.
Hey! You're on there too:)Lol@osack...dead on.
Ladies,I've been asked if I belong to body building team, also I've been told that I grapple like a man. How nice! We should form a team of some type.
hahah I wasn't under the "women" section either! I actually found it amusing how many categories there were.@Triin: what the heck does "grapple like a man" mean?!
I have been told that I "grapple like a man"; or more often, that I am *TRYING* to grapple like a man. In my case, they mean that I am trying to use force-vs-force on people who are much stronger- or trying to do techniques that would work on someone my own size or smaller, but are simply not going to work on 99.99% of the people I work with.
Ashley,I don't know if it's a compliment or not :) Not sure why people think I grapple like a man since I hardly ever submit anyone. I do like to play heavy smash top game, may-be that is considered manly.
YAY I am so proud of you!
Congratulations! That's a pretty solid list. Some people do regard me as "not-a-girl," too, when they discover I do BJJ and I roll with guys (sweat and all)!
