Checking out her competition
Difficult roads often leads to beautiful destinations.
always on the ice playing hockey, kid - — in hockey - when you are a kid, they didn't allow body checking (hitting), the first year there was hitting, I got so timid and scared and quit - Natas Kaupas time.. There was thrills - tournaments - mcDLT for lunch, or bacon cheeseburger, always through* out the pickle. I wasn’t a big goal scorer, I think I was on first line, hazy memory, loved skating and passing…for some reason, never thought I was capable of scoring..but when it did happen, the feeeeels of that…this is back in the Ottawa valley - (tick tick tick…. Berlin Wall ago. I figure everyone feels the same attachment to how things were before…I wanted to be fast - n - good passing skills, I didn’t want to be tough or the biggest goal scorer…I eat the pickles now…and why don’t they sell quarter pounders here anymore? …..//////\\\\\\\\ok ok, grateful ++ excited*peaked…and there’s donuts and ice cream there and wagyu - and amazing pizza…feel pretty lucky ———————— I got the most sportsmanlike award - once or twice…never expected….can’t wait to compete again and feel that feeling - how does it feel….tunnel vision - adrenaline - scary - nerve-wracking - thrilling….it is what it is, but way way way way way wayyyyyy better. Still desperate but fighting validation needs - but still needs validation…maybe not next time. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #thehappynow #seekpositive #simpleandstill #highvibelife #positiveintentions #postiveliving #gratitude #tasteintravel #liveauthentic #exploreeverywhere #stayandwander #welltravelled #yeg #edmonton #singapore #bjj #jiutjitsu #grappling #fitspo #fitness #shoyroll #grappleasia #fitnessmotivation #teamhighlightreelsg #teamhighlightreel
So this happened over the weekend. In hindsight, it was BEYOND STUPID to eat 2 tarts, 1 fried chicken piece, 1 waffle , a hash brown ,2 coffees and a liter of water right before a grappling competition NEVER DOING THAT again 😂😂still I’m glad I managed to clinch the gold in my division after 3 hard fought matches (1 sub, 2 decision) against tough guys ! Wasn’t my best performance, cardio was non existent and shoulda capitalized on some opportunities but no regrets , just gotta keep working at it! As always an awesome time competing with da team @teamhighlightreelsg that did awesome as well😍😍😍😍 sucks that Im back to life with the burden known as school though 🤓😩😩😩 woooo #grappleasia #rollwithit #summerslam #bjj #nogi #whysomanypeoplepreferthatgaygigripsshitillneverunderstand #teamhighlightreelsg #teamnobra #win #teamindia #fathumansofasia #grappling #bluebelt

What a fantastic performance of our Mavericks on their first comp as a team! We went home carrying gold, silver and a lot of experience! We could not be any prouder of having these guys representing our dojo and raising our flag. Plus, these family meetings are always fun. Thank you, Mavericks, for showing your strength and courage and to all the friends that came down to cheer and support! (Missing a few on the photo unfortunately). And that’s it for the pep talk, we’ll see you tomorrow back in the office! Oss! #maverickmartialarts #delarivasg #OHSY #delarivajiujitsu #familyreunion
