    I’ll let the experienced ladies on this site advise you…

    I just have to say one thing.

    Brainerd, MN? Please tell me you speak exactly like the Marge Gunderson from Fargo.

    “Ah, hon, ya got Arby’s all over me.”

    You’re a mommy?

    From what I hear, the pain of labor is WAY more than anything you’ll ever experience in the ring…so relax 🙂

    i was at a seminar by Dan Inosanto once and he was talking about how all these old Filipino men (including his father) used to take unsanctioned boxing matches to supplement thier income after work. Their motto was “How bad can three rounds be?”

    LOL, for some reason this expression has stuck with me, particlarly when I have to spar after a brutal training session. I’m in no way trying to minimize the experience of actually fighting (which is amazing and props to you for stepping up), but it’s a nice way of helping your mind to relax a bit. If your training and technique is there, then just find little things to say to yourself that will get your mental conditioning up there.

    😉 You’ll be great

    thanks for the encouragement! there is nothing that could talk me out of the ring. but the unknown is always scary. I train with Brock Larson and he loves fighting. granted he is 15/0. He has been hit hard though. Stephan Potvin clobberd him good with a head kick. and he never shys away from a fight. so, i have a good mentor. but around here females in this sport are non-existant. i have to pave the way. i have some women in the dojo that are into the muy thai that seem to be waiting to see how i do before the commit to training for real. its been a long process with alot of emotion. and now that i am so close, I guess i just cant wait!!!

    This is funny!!!!! I was born in MN and some relatives still live there… I have to say great state to visit….. Yes I will admit they do talk like fargo but the only way to pick it up is not be a native MN ( you knoooooooooow).

    Anyone that can live through a Minnesota winter has my vote that they will last 10 min in the cage!!!!!!

    Welcome to the site!!!!!

    I suggest working on putting your stand up, takedowns, and ground game together.

    You mean starting from standup and maybe trowing some jabs, shooting a double leg, then moving to position and gnping or submitting?

    kindov making a drill out of it?

    Sounds like a drill I need to do. What I really need is a training partner. 😥

    Basically. Work on transitioning from one range to another and also work on not getting stuck in one range (ie. when you’re grappling you forget that you can get back up and box).
