    Apparenly my claim to fame so far on here is a one min youtube video of me talking to mirko cro cop on the street.

    But if you dont know, I'm actually a Purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I've been training almost four years and am totally obsessed with the sport. I actually have a blog I have started to write... So if you are ever looking for something bjj focused... here it is!

    I hope you guys enjoy, I'm always looking for ideas, feedback, etc.

    Just out of curiosity, did you recognize Dean Lister when you ran into Cro Cop. It didn't seem like it from your video.

    Eitherway, very brave to get an interview with Cro Cop and his gang. I would have been too intimidated.

    i didn't recognize him at first. I ended up meeting him later in the week and knew who he was. he remembered me and thought it was hilarious.

    no, I wish, unfortunately I'm not going to be competing much in the midwest anymore, there aren't enough female purple belts... Apparently there are one or two my size in the chicago area, but they are more focused on MMA right now so I haven't heard either of them competing recently...


    One of my teammates is going up there though, he's a pretty cool guy I think he will do really well!

    good point. i don't know if i saw any even at the last naga

    well if you are ever in chicago and want to train let me know. hannette staack runs a female team at brazil 021. no purple belts but plenty of blue belt females...or at least come down for a chance to train with hannette :cool:

    There were two at the last NAGA.... One named Fatimeh who paid to compete, and me.... I work for NAGA and wasn't in the best... situation, but they made me compete so she would have someone to go with. It was fun, but I will definitely never agree to compete hungover again...

    I would love to come up and train with Hannette! She is a great jiu jitsu player, and even though she's got a few weight classes on me I know I would learn a ton! The problem is the blue belt hole(like a black belt) most females that start bjj never get out of it... Things happen, emotions run high, babies are created, and the blue belt hole sucks us in... it's weird knowing I'm a rarity because I hit purple belt...

    I would have been more excited to see Lister than Cro Cop to be honest.
