Sophia McDermott Drysdale

Last weekend was a huge week. I had a blast in Philly teaching at World  Class Martial Arts academy where Leeann teaches who is the founder of the women's BJJ empowerment group Josei Heishi JiuJitsu.   Because of Leeann's amazing network the turnout was great.!

On the Saturday March 11 I taught a co ed seminar. One again it is so great to see so many progressive guys attending who are open minded. This was the 1st co- ed seminar in 16 years that was taught by a woman. I am really excited to be the 1st lady teching it! There were a total of 6 black belts on the mat which is such an honour.
