Holy Moly it’s a brand new year! Let’s kick it off by working off all the holiday champaign and cake. Grab your gloves, gis and buddies and get back to doing what we love most. First and foremost, I put together some of the photos I have taken over the last 4 years that really encapsulate what this project has been all about for me in the 2014 CALENDAR: FEMALE FIGHTER PROJECT:
“Dedicated to the friendships & family we form on the mat sealed in sweat and blood.”
(Note: this is through Zazzle, they print and ship, wish the based price was lower but don’t have the cash to order in bulk and preprint)
If you are in the Bay Area and looking to get your BJJ roll on with some awesome ladies, tomorrow night is Bay Jiu Jitsu’s Monthly Women’s Open Mat where all skill levels are welcome and it’s free (donations accepted). You should also mark your calendars
for Saturday March 1, 2014 @ 12:00pm – 4:00pm because Kristina Barlaan is throwing another INSPIRE… 2nd Bay Area Edition: All Female Open Mat. You should certainly REGISTER NOW since spaces are limited and it will fill up!
2014 is going to be all getting things done and if you haven’t tried Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are don’t know why I won’t shut up about it you should totally come give it a try! Starting in February I will be teaching an 8 week long Women’s Introduction Program in Oakland. Come SIGN UP!
Over the last few years, I have come to realize that my passion for the sport stems from this evangelical drive to want to share it with everyone. Teaching has totally become my calling. I love sharing what I have learned and being a part of growing the culture in that respect. In fact I got to go now because I am off to teach!
Here’s to the start of another wonderful year. Looking forward to seeing you all on the mats!
