As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I was wrong. I stayed, launched my first company, Flipside Fitness, and then opened Korea's largest boxing club, Hulk's Boxing (now called Hulk's Club).

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again.

Now I live in the Philippines where I am the CEO and head coach of Empowered Clubhouse, the Philippines' first and only boxing clubhouse exclusively just for women. I also am the founder of the Lil' Sistas Project, CEO and designer of Slay Gear and Baa Baa Black Sheep .Ph.

The Grind Continues Despite It's a Holiday

It's just me here, walking in the middle of the street because with the holiday this city has turned into a complete ghost town.  There's closed businesses on my one side but a very busy and very loud boxing club to my other side.  
Holiday?!  What holiday, us boxers and coaches don't get a holiday.
Today, out of curiosity, several of us stepped on the scale.  We started with Coach Jun Jun.
Then it was Coach Bogs' turn.
Last but not least it was mine.
In Korea I weighed 107.  In Canada I got up to 135.  Now here in the Philippines I'm 126.6lbs.
Everyone including me was shocked.  I'm smaller than I have been in a long time but heavy.
"Pool party, my place, tonight... must be a boxer to attend", I posted on Facebook.
