I was lucky enough to be a guest instructor with along side the amazing multiple time world champ and total badass Hannette Staack for the Grapplin' Gals event in Seattle. The weekend was kicked off with my Co Ed Seminar on Friday followed by a Women's Seminar on Saturday where I was able to meet some truly inspiration peeps! 

We were also lucky to be joined by 6 other black belts who show case their skills. It truly was a huge event!

A massive thank you goes to the Grapplin' Gals is the organisation and Sonia Sillan who organised this amazing event!
