MMA stands for mixed martial arts, a competitive sport that mixes the forms of martial arts and combat fighting. So why are passionate about this mixed sport style? Because MMA is both beautiful and fierce.
Being able to train at my local gym for MMA fighting has been such a dream come true for me. Since my gym doesn't offer MMA classes, I searched for a private instructor to come to the gym and help me perfect my technique. Doing this once a week has been a huge confidence booster for me, and everyone in my life can see the improvements!

I have a bunch of friends on a lacrosse team. My (ex) wife and I used to watch them play before we had Joanna (that's how long it's been). Recently, I had time to go support some of my pals in their game.
I played basketball in grade school. I was the point guard, I think? Honestly, I have no idea which position it was. I was already tall (I'm 5'8") so I was the girl who tipped the ball at the start of the game.
My son just started little league baseball this year & he was so nervous about it. He's 8 & a little shy. He was scared about how he would play & if the other kids on the team would make fun of him if he wasn't any good.
I've been playing squash since college. It was always the sport I gravitated towards. I'm a lover of badminton and tennis, so naturally, this was the next step for me. I prefer one-on-one games, but don't mind playing in teams.
