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.

All Fighting Sports Under One Roof

Walked into FightCon today and this was what welcomed me... intimidating but impressive.
Pretty much every fighting sport was present today.
Each sport took their turn to do a demonstration. 
I was particularly interested in this female fighter who kept 
true to her religious background and kicked royal butt with the boys.
 There were a lot of fierce female fighters present.  Way to go Filipinas!!!
Got a bit distracted by the bods of these fighters!
The ultra toned bodies and lack of body fat, dang Skippy.  I want that too for my body!
 Coach Kristian from Hernandez Boxing texted to say he was coming so I hung out with him and his adorable son.  The both were equally stuck on this particular XBox boxing game... too funny!
Look at who I also ran into -- ONE Championship Heavyweight Champ, Brandon Vera.
The man was massive, both in personality and in size.  
He could have easily palmed my entire head with his hand!!!
Part of the excitement of today's convention was checking out the live fights at the end of the day. 
I think I was more interested in the fitness challenge they had posed than the fights actually.
