    I have a MMA type school in SF that has been open for 18 months now.
    We offer self defense, fight classes, groundfighting (submission style), yoga and cardio classes. Because SF has lots of BJJ instruction available, our school cater to those who are interested in No Gi training.

    If you or anyone you know need or wants to find a safe and sane place to train, have them contact me. This school is open to men and women.

    Hi Zee,

    heard a little about you. I train up north with Dave T. and Cesar. I’ll have to come by and check it out for fun sometime. OK?

    Wow! For those reading this thread who may not know it Zee is a legend. Back around ’97-’99 (pre-Remix and HOOKnSHOOT “Revolution”) the most respected women fighting at the time were Zee, Jennifer Howe, and Becky Levi. Talk about pioneers….

    I remember Zee from MMA.TV. She used to post on there a lot. I think she was a purple belt back then?

    “our school cater to those who are interested in No Gi training.”

    That rocks. I prefer no-gi. I think it is the future of grappling.

    Ya……My last competition was in 2002, I hurt my back training takedowns as this A**hole suplexed me onto the small of my back (lower Lumbar) and ever since, I have back problems, and the doctor told me no more competitions. Suffered 2 slipped discs and some degeneration in others. I resisted (aknowledging my injury) as I continued to roll, but everytime I have someone in my guard and go for arm bar or Triangles, their defense first is to stack me. This is what aggravates the back.

    This year I am making gains as I am going through, Chiro, Massage, Acupuncture, PNF, and have just hired a personal trainer.

    Believe me, everytime I hear about these fights, I get excited, but I have to control this because, I can get hurt much more seriously. If I had other women to train with, there would not be the same problem, but everyone that trains with me or at the school is male, and usually 180-220 lbs. Very few guys who are smaller.

    I would LOVE to fight again, but between the injury, work (I am a Physiotherapist), and my own school, I just don’t have the time to commit to training. Plus, there is not enough money in it yet to make it worthwhile. I know Japan pays well, but I have spent far more than $5000 on medical/health rehabilitation.

    So, the question many have emailed me is…Will I ever compete again?

    Well, I would like to, for sure. If I am able to work my way back, I will try submission grappling first to test my body. If I did well, then I could consider MMA.

    But, I have found a new love, TEACHING, My school has been open for almost 18 months, we have over 200 students, who also practice other things like Yoga, Kickboxing etc..

    My students competed in the Joao Pierini grappling competition last November and ALL my students either placed 1st or 2nd. So, I have to say, I am elated!

    I am now a BJJ Brown Belt but teach No Gi as there is too much competition with other schools in the Bay Area, So, No Gi is for me!

    If any of you (male or female) ever decide to drop in to train, just mention “Fightergirls” at the front desk, and I will give you a free week of training!

    Take Care all of you and have a better 2005!

    Fuzzy (Zee)

    Hi Zee,
    I’m just curious what PNF is? I have been suffering from continuous back/pelvis/sacrum/hip pain for at least a year now following a series of injuries — i’m doing the chiro, massage, accupuncture thing also, and while it alleviates some of the symptoms, i’m still not healing all the way. it is soooooo frustrating, especially reading about all of the awesome training and competition that everyone is in to! just wondering what PNF is and how it’s working for you.

    best of luck with your healing!

    J

    PNF = Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation which is a fancy word for Aided Stretching but with a trained Physical Therapist who understands what your limits are. So, what the therapist does is put my body into positions where I get a stretch. I work on breathing and focussing on improving flexibility. I have loads of strength
    (I was a former Powerlifter) which over the years has tightened my body, so for me, I NEED this type of thing!

    I hope this helps…

    ..if you are that muscular. do you lose flexibility..
    ,,i mean if i or someone as skilled as me
    …took you down..whether you are on your back or front
    ,,,isnt it hard for you to actually reverse
    …i mean you would use your power to reverse
    ..but if we know that we would have a catch/submission waiting for you
    ,,if you use raw strength to reverse..
    actually..if i feel a strong fighter will reverse me by strength
    ,,i have a knee or kick waitng for them
    ..as they spin and get to their knees..
    …are you thinking of making yourself more lean
    ,,i mean you look powerful, but i feel not to crafty
    as in setting traps/catches/
    i feel you would try to run over opponents..
    ,,if i am wrong -please tell me/i am 155 5’7/mean as heck//

    I have to say that the more I have been in this MMA process, the more I DO NOT use strength. I like the flow of jiu-jitsu and not forcing moves. Forcing things just drains energy. So, I am strong but only use as much strength necessary but get my submissions with TECHNIQUE…not strength! I am flexible enough that I can get the job done.

    Jiu-Jitsu to me, is like one big CHESS GAME!
