As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Thursdays are for Sparring

 That's the cutest boxer I've ever seen.
Actually, I think he's just waiting for his dad to finish training.  None the less, he's super cute.
Getting my gear ready for today's sparring with Coach Arman.

Today I had a special visitor come watch me spar.
 I had my own little cheering crowd, nice.  

Thanks to Coach Arman for being a great sparring partner and not hitting me too hard.  I'm pretty sure my brain shock with that one nasty blow earlier on in the sparring session but I'm okay.
