Melinda got into martial arts to lose weight. “At first, I just wanted to lose weight, then I fell in love with everything about the sport at the first practice. I had the lowest self-esteem and needed to change, so I got a hold of a local fighter and went in that afternoon for class. I even teach my daughter’s combinations and drills”.
