Girls on the mats

Girls on the mats


  In the last year, the number of women training BJJ at K2 Martial Arts has skyrocketed.  We have a great group of women that shows dedication and hard work.

Congratulation to Morgan on obtaining her blue belt, hard work does pay off.  Every belt is a new beginning.

To all the ladies, always remember to train like a girl.  That’s what we are and that’s what will make stronger and better.

We are ALL grappling machines.

This competition year has been a rollercoaster ride. All the loses, heartbreaks, hard training sessions, bruises, tears (there has been a few) and even the wins has lead to Gold at the Worlds Masters.  I have never been so physically and mentally ready for this.  In my mind, I have done everything humanely possible to win and there was no way I was losing this one.  Since becoming a purple belt, I had to relearn how to compete, I had to tighten my game and rebuild the confidence I once had.

I am always very nervous leading up to competitions, especially a big one like the Worlds Masters.  The Seattle Open was a perfect opportunity to get rid of all my competition jitters.  Once I stepped on those mats at the Worlds Masters, it was go time.  My family was there to support and cheer for me, it was a great feeling to be there with them.

The harder I lose, the bigger I win and its all due to this wonderful RCJ Machado family.  I can’t say it enough; I do have the best team in the world; my teammates, my coaches, my husband, my family.  We win, we lose and we grow together.
