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.

Boxing Beats with the Boys

Stepped into the ring today with a newsparring partner.  
It was none other than my coach, Coach Bogs.
He fights at the same weight as me but I weigh-in right now a little bit heavier than him.
I tried to keep him against the ropes and do a lot of body shot combos on him.
We only went three rounds but to say "only" is an understatement.  It was exhausting... but I loved it.
Later in the day I headed over to Hernandez Boxing to see if the champ was training.
