BJJ ATHLETES

"It’s a really big release when you let go of the end result. I was always so competitive, even if I performed badly I would be happy if I won. But now even if I lose, I am happy if I feel like I performed well."

ANGELICA GALVAO

A wonderful role model with a strong belief in hard work

“It’s all about self awareness, you have to know the difference between being tired and being burnt out.”

SAMANTHA COOK

THE SMILING ASSASSIN. 

 ‘Being a role model is a by product of trying to achieve your goals. Being a good person, making some mistakes. I want to humanise myself, we pour our hearts out on the mat.’’

"I put so much pressure on winning that it blocked me... I worried too much about other people’s opinions, rather than my own, and I couldn’t have fun. It was a hard way to find out that what matters is how you feel and not what others expect of you."
