As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

I Can't Feel my Face when I'm with You

 Sparring Day today -- Coach Bogs vs me.
I may have got him with some good shots and be using my body weight more but he definitely got me with a few solid punches that are going to leave me sore later on, like this overhand right and an upper cut that seriously made me feel as if my whole nose had shifted on my face.
Eight rounds of looking for that opening to land this punch or that combo and then it's over.  Then we're back to being all friendly and joking around.
Exhausted, drenched in sweat, but not done training just yet.
