This past weekend was the biggest weekend of Jiu Jitsu because it was the weekend of the World Championships. So many athletes prepare for this big to make their mark in the World of BJJ.
So many amazing women have crossed my path in the past few years and a lot of them competed. I know that for a lot of these ladies they are juggling full time jobs and families and yet they are still making their mark on the tournament scene. This is just a testament to how incredible so many women are who have a life full of responsibilities and commitments, but they make the time for themselves and their passions also.
I was the only mother on the podium in the women's black belt division at the Worlds in 2014. Ladies, with support and lots of dedication our dreams as mothers, career women and world class athletes can be achieved. This just shows how strong and capable we really are.
