The Worlds Masters
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.
