How did you get started in Martial Arts?
I grew up with a lot of people around me getting into martial arts and I’ve never had that opportunity. I felt as though it was something you had to have a go at in life and just gave it a chance.
How did you decide on your chosen martial art?
I’m timid in nature so I wanted to do something that would bring me out of my shell. I’ve always had an interest in striking and kick boxing element so I wanted to build on that.
What Was your first experience like at LEGENDS MMA?
I didn’t really know what to expect and how I would fit in so naturally was a bit apprehensive. But have to say I felt so comfortable from the first moment I walked in.

The diversity in background students and coaches and the common passion for what they do.
HOW HAS YOUR TRAINING DEVELOPED WITH THE SUPPORT OF YOUR TRAINERS AND TEAM MATES AT LEGENDS MMA?
They really keep you mentally sharp. Let’s just say this is not the place to just go through the motions. They whole heartedly foster your individual growth, they will guide you but ultimately it’s on you to be the driver of your growth & development. It’s really great when your coaches see the effort you’re putting into yourself.
HOW DOES MARTIAL ARTS KEEP YOU MOTIVATED?
Personal growth is really important to me which is my main motivation. There’s always ups and down in my training. I sometimes give into the negative feelings and sometimes I just park those thoughts and train away and I’m always so elated for persevering and pushing myself.

I discovered I’m a fighter. I am small in stature but I won’t let that stop me facing those twice my size.
