Anita Fun Euro Wrestler

The widely admired Edward Estlin Cummings (October 14, 1894 – September 3, 1962), known as E. E. Cummings, with the abbreviated form of his name often written by others in lowercase letters as e e cummings, was an American poet, painter, essayist, author, and playwright. His body of work encompasses approximately 2,900 poems, two autobiographical novels, four plays and several essays, as well as numerous drawings and paintings. He is remembered as an eminent voice of 20th century English literature.

He was once quoted as saying, “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

When watching the talented Hungarian wrestler Anita, one thing that you notice is that she has a great sense of humor.

She is also a great wrestler as well. article, DWW photo

Here are some of her match reviews.

“Young and strong Anita versus her wrestling teacher Viktoria! Anita is very strong and extremely skilled even at her young age. We all know perfectly well that Viktoria is the best wrestler of the HWW team and that she’s very strong, skilled and fit although she already belongs to our elder generation of wrestlers. This is a very interesting “old vs young” competition and it once again is proving us that age isn’t decisive when two women are wrestling. Will the coach be able to show her wrestling student that she’s still the stronger and better woman? As always there’s technically skilled, controlled, purist and straight world class wrestling performance when two HWW wrestlers are wrestling each other.”

That turned out to be a much tougher match than many expected. It speaks to Anita’s ability to learn quickly and adapt. Here is a description of another match.

“Young Anita is much heavier than Antscha. We interviewed Antscha before the match and sometimes between the falls and she confirms that Anita is stronger than her but that she needs to use her skills and the experience of the mature woman for having a chance. This is truly a match between two generations as Antscha is more than 12 years older than Anita. Anita is also much bigger than Antscha and she’s a skilled and aggressive fighter. This is an exciting and very even match with 5 great submissions between two very strong women.”

That match occurred when Anita was only 18 years old against the experienced and exceptional wrestler Antscha.

What is fun about Anita’s matches is though clearly she wants to win; still her competitions are laced with humor and bantering. In one case when a thirty something mom wanted to give wrestling a try, Anita easily could have dominated her in a brutal fashion but instead while she was clearly in control and winning, she began to tickle our sexy adventurous mom as well.

When someone can keep you laughing as much as Anita does, wouldn’t it be great to meet her at a coffee shop with friends and share a few laughs? Why don’t we travel to Anita’s home country and relax at a few of the coffee shops.

Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is.……Francis Bacon

Budapest has always been big on cafés and in the last couple of years the coffee scene has expanded with a number of new independent coffee shops brewing excellent java. If you are looking for creative alternatives to those ubiquitous chains, here are some of the best places to satisfy your caffeine craving.

“You’ll find serious coffee skills at Espresso Embassy, with its pour over, siphon and cold drip options at the brew bar. Dedicated staff (champion baristas among them), beautifully executed coffee and a selection of baked goods make this café a roaring success. Try their espresso, cortado, flat white or café latte and you’ll keep coming back. Add free WiFi and the posh design and you’ll never want to leave.

It’s no surprise Tamp & Pull is one of the best coffee shops in Budapest. Founder Attila Molnár, a barista champion himself, is focused on the output of a premium product. He serves three different Has Bean beans changing every month, roasted by British roast master Stephen Leighton. The espresso bar offers a variety of brewing methods for true coffee enthusiasts. Not only does Tamp & Pull make a perfect cup of coffee, they offer barista and brewing classes too.

Inspired by a trip to Melbourne, this cozy little café in Madách tér has a passion for great coffee. My Little Melbourne is known for its advanced latte art and delicious espresso-based drinks. The brew bar offers syphon, chemex, aeropress or pour over methods. A variety of teas, freshly made juices, pastries, salads and sandwiches complement the excellent coffee.

Probably the smallest coffee shop in town, Fekete is committed to fair-trade coffee and locally sourced ingredients, like farmer’s milk from Etyek. Their delicious coffee is made with a La Marzocco machine. Take your beverage to go, or opt for some street-side seating and people watching.”

The informative site provides us with a little history. “Coffee culture was thriving in Budapest from around the early 1910’s until the beginning of the 1930’s. In this era the around 500 cafés were scattered around the city. article, Wikimedia photo

They served as common meeting places of talented writers, poets and artists. Some of them spent most of the day in their favorite place, musing or writing at their regular tables.”

I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.….Audrey Hepburn

Now they can serve as a watering hole for great female wrestlers as well.

It’s funny, refreshing and entertaining to watch our Hungarian star Anita wrestle. Our suggestion is, while you sit back to enjoy Anita compete, bring a cup of coffee and sense of humor with you as well.

A+ Priority, Getting Along

Remain calm, serene, always in command of yourself. You will then find out how easy it is to get along.…..Paramahansa Yogananda

For the new world of women’s wrestling to come to fruition some of the key ingredients that must occur are cooperation and maintaining good relations. article, Wikimedia photo

The new world as Female Competition International (FCI) see’s it is that the Female Submission Wrestlers will engage with the Female Freestyle Wrestlers who have graduated from the great WCWA programs in title fights at the Dojo in dignified attire where family and friends can attend.

The present as research seems to indicate is that for women to wrestle professionally, they either have to engage in eroticism, violent often bloody combat in an MMA cage or ply their trade in the current Lady Pro world of over the top characters or divas.

As individuals or groups sometimes in our dealings with one another, issues may arise that make it challenging to get along. Given what may be at stake, what are some steps that all of can take to look at the larger picture and take steps to ensure positive outcomes.

I have been up against tough competition all my life. I wouldn’t know how to get along without it.….Walt Disney

Mr. Robert Chen, the owner of in his article How to Get Along with Almost Anyone (it’s easier than you think), offers some exceptional suggestions.

1. Make the other person feel significant 

No one likes to feel small and most conflicts occur when you make others feel uinimportant whether you intend to or not. If you think back to situations that make you angry or frustrated, it mostly likely stemmed from someone disrespecting or dismissing you. Road rage is a perfect example of this.

The key to getting along with almost anyone is to avoid actions that diminish others and replace them with actions that build up others.

Here are some behaviors that break down relationships:

  1. Acting annoyed, rolling your eyes, sighing audibly or sucking your teeth.
  2. Being disrespectful with your words or actions by not paying attention to someone who is speaking to you, using a condescending or patronizing tone, raising your voice or being unresponsive.
  3. Undermining others, speaking negatively of others, unfairly criticizing the other person’s attributes, actions and efforts or sabotaging someone’s project or reputation.

Now that you know what behaviors to avoid, you can strengthen you relationships with these actions:

Pay Attention Fully

When you interact with someone, give them your undivided attention. Don’t look around to see what else is going on or check your phone or watch. Take time to listen and respond accordingly to show you’re engaged. Make the other person feel like they’re the most important person you’re meeting with that year.

Get Insatiably Curious

Nothing will make someone light up more brightly than showing genuine interest in them. Be curious and ask specific questions based on what you hear. The more questions you ask, the better the interaction will go but keep in mind that you must be sincere. If you try to fake it, people can tell. Express real enthusiasm to be with this person.

Elevate Appropriately

When possible, show that you consider the other person remarkable. You can highlight the great work that they’re doing, compliment them on specific past achievements or let them know how grateful you are to spend time with them. Find opportunities to speak highly of this person to others as often as you honestly can. One trap to avoid is making others feel more important by putting yourself down. This is never helpful so it’s critical that you lift others up in a way that respects everyone including you.

It’s not hard to get along with others. article, Wikimedia photo

Make them feel important by showing them that you value their time, knowledge and experience. A good rule of thumb is to treat others like you would the CEO of your company, President of your country or someone you truly admire. Think about how you would act if you met with these individuals.

I’m sure you would probably:

  • give them your full attention and all the time in the world,
  • be curious about their lives and
  • find opportunities to compliment them and their work.

If you act this way with all your relationships, you’ll see some great results.

Those were some outstanding suggestions from Mr. Chen.

The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.…..Theodore Roosevelt

Underscoring the significance of this, a recent survey reveals millions of people in the UK do not have a single friend and one in five feel unloved, according to a survey published by the relationship charity Relate.

One in 10 people questioned said they did not have a close friend, amounting to an estimated 4.7 million people in the UK may be leading a very lonely existence.

On an individual level, research also indicates there is a strong correlation between possessing good health and maintain healthy relationships. article

In a well written article by, they cite that the Department of Health and Human Services issued a 68 page report that married people are happier, live longer, drink less, and even have few doctor’s appointments than unmarried folks.

The Mayo Clinic cites statistics that happily married people live longer than singles and have lower rates of diseases including cancer and heart failure. Not only did increased levels of happiness significantly improve longevity, but these couples, acting as a team, also became better equipped to defray the stressors in life that may be detrimental to your health.

Using an MRI scanner it may be seen that sections of the brain that produce powerful neurotransmitters that affects pleasure, happiness and well-being are activated when people are experiencing feelings of love.

Adults who feel they are useful to their family and friends are less likely to suffer from chronic illness and have lower mortality rates.

Divorce can damage one’s physical health so dramatically that the person never recovers according to a study in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior. Divorced people have 20 percent more chronic health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, than married people. They also have 23 percent more mobility limitations.

The higher a person rates their feelings of loneliness the more likely they are to develop cognitive problems, with the loneliest twice as likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.

We live in exciting times where so much can be accomplished and place us in a position to change the future of dignified women’s wrestling.

Whether it’s on an individual or group level, creating and sustaining positive relationships has measurable benefits. article, photo

Bori Wrestler Hungary

Former DWW-HWW female wrestling star Bori is the master at exercising patience.

One of the Founding Fathers of The United States, Benjamin Franklin was once quoted as saying, “He that can have patience can have what he will.”

That of course can apply to a “she” as well.

A former DWW star and grappling veteran, Bori is very adept at a long term ground war where she slowly imposes her will on her opponents until the only option left is to submit. On the mats, Bori has mastered the art of patience. article - DWW  photo

Patience goes by many definitions. It can be conceived as the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset. The source extends the understanding by stating that patience is an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay.

Researching and pinning down Bori’s wrestling career is an exercise in patience. Why? It seems she has called herself Gina when wrestling at Flamingo is South Florida, Orsi K. when competing at DWW and at Femwin’s Budapest venture and a Portuguese company called APL, she goes by Bori.

Got that?

What I’ve enjoyed about watching Bori over the years is that even when first starting out, there was an aura of maturity to her approach. Typical of most European girls in general and DWW ladies in particular, they are not trash talkers.

They let their wrestling do the talking.

When Bori competed in America as Gina, she came in at a heavier and in my opinion sexier weight. Over time she has slimmed down and seems to take a more stealth approach to her grappling. With her consistent olive skin and regal demeanor, she will always be a classic beauty.

As she has evolved, she seems to enjoy being a mentor to other young female wrestlers at the Budapest location and in many of their matches; Bori can be heard in the background providing them with instruction.

According to her profile Bori loves something else artistic as well. She writes novels.

Let’s briefly peer into Hungarian culture and gaze at a novel that generated high praise and that’s Magda Szabo’s quiet jewel, “The Door.” The book review site shares, “A young writer, struggling for success, employs an elderly woman called Emerence to be her housekeeper. From their first encounter it is clear that Emerence is no ordinary maid. This work evokes the development of the bond between these two very different women, and the tragic ending to their relationship.”

It sounds enticing doesn’t it?

I would love to read the titles that Bori has penned to help influence and possibly change the world.

My passion is film and Hungary excels there as well. article - wikimedia photo

During one of my vacation movie marathons I came across a slow mesmerizing cinematic incision entitled, “Kontrol.” The global giant film vault provides the description, “In the dismal world of the Budapest subway system, ticket inspector Bulcsú (Sándor Csányi) and his crew cope with everything from freeloaders to a hooded killer, while reaffirming their ability to survive each day by engaging in competitions with other crews. First-time director Nimród Antal helms this Hungarian box office smash hit and winner of the Prix de la Jeunes award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.”

For this writer, there was a far more penetrating, underlying message.

Yes it was a fascinating psychological thriller about the race against time to capture a serial killer but what captivated me more was the location. Virtually all of the scenes were shot in the subway. It was void of sunlight and enlightenment from the world upstairs. You could literally see his surroundings wearing down the hero yet he was powerless to escape until his weary legs finally led him to a different future.

I related so well because at the time, in an office with no windows, I was stuck in a solid but dismal dead end job that paid the bills and provided for my family and though I thought about it every single day, I just couldn’t escape until it was too late. My wife and I we’re vacationing in San Francisco and as I walked past 5 star hotels and skyscrapers that pierced the azure ceiling, I could feel it.

I sighed to myself that I finally escaped that dark place for good.

The world awaits Bori’s masterpiece.

Let’s briefly travel to Budapest. article - wikimedia photo

The great information source Wikipedia educates us well. “Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary, and one of the largest cities in the European Union. It is the country’s principal political, cultural, commercial, industrial, and transportation center, sometimes described as the primate city of Hungary.

In 2011, according to the census, Budapest had 1.74 million inhabitants, down from its 1989 peak of 2.1 million due to suburbanization. The Budapest Metropolitan Area is home to 3.3 million people. The city covers an area of 525 square kilometers (202.7 sq. mi) within the city limits.

Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, its extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes’ Square and the Millennium Underground Railway, the second-oldest metro line in the world. article - wikimedia photo

It has 80 geothermal springs, the world’s largest thermal water cave system, the second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building. The city attracts about 4.3 million tourists a year, making it the 25th most popular city in the world to visit (and the 6th in Europe) according to Euromonitor.

Considered a financial hub in Central Europe, the city ranked 3rd (out of 65 cities) on MasterCard’s Emerging Markets Index, and ranked as the most liveable Central and Eastern European city on EIU‘s quality of life index. It is also ranked as “the world’s second best city” by Condé Nast Traveler, “Europe’s 7th most idyllic place to live” by Forbes, and as the 9th most beautiful city in the world by UCityGuides. It is the highest ranked Central/Eastern European city on Innovation Cities’ Top 100 index.”

It’s easy to escape inside Bori’s matches.

Her ground struggles tend to be erotic. Mostly Bori comes out on top as the New Yorker Trinity found out the hard way during one of the more feisty matches I have ever viewed. Bori’s patience was sorely tested that day. With the restrictions placed upon Trinity’s BJJ skills, temper’s boiled as Trinity was tested in her efforts to hold back.

It was the only time I saw Bori get a little, well……..impatient.

Bori continues to be great for the female submission wrestling industry. If we had paid coaches like other sports, she would be an exceptional one.

In her role as a mentor and instructor, Bori seems to have found her niche. Her wrestling is a joy forever and her patience is a great virtue.

BofA Female Friendly

Bank of America continues to look for ways to empower women and advance leadership roles.

If you have been in the work force for years at the present time are you prospering or struggling financially? It may come as a surprise but much of your happiness or satisfaction with your present economic station depends upon whether you had good mentors to guide you in the early stages of your financial development.

A mentor is a wise, trusted and experienced teacher that provides effective guidance. For a mentor to truly be effective, they must possess all three of those key characteristics. article - Wikimedia photo

In terms of social responsibility, one of the goals of Bank of America is a continued commitment to advancing women leaders and for those of you women reading this article in our competitive wrestling community, that could mean you.

So that Female Competition International (FCI) communicates their ideas as accurately as possible, we have visited their websites at and

One of their goals is explained very simply and clearly. “Through strategic partnerships, investments, and programs, we’re connecting women to the human, social, and financial capital resources they need to maximize their potential. Our efforts are empowering women to enrich their lives, as well as those of their families and communities, and helping create stronger economies worldwide.”

By investing in and empowering women inside and outside the company, Bank of America is creating strong leaders who are contributing to the growth of local economies.

wikimedia photo article

“Our signature initiative, the Global Ambassadors Program, developed in conjunction with Vital Voices Global Partnership and launched in 2012, connects women leaders from emerging countries with senior executives from a range of business sectors, including Bank of America, for one-on-one mentoring,” says Candace Browning, head of Global Research at BofA Merrill Lynch. The program helps women overcome personal, business, civic and other barriers to economic empowerment. “Through mentoring forums held in Haiti, South Africa, India, Singapore, and Brazil, we’ve convened hundreds of women to discuss how women’s leadership can help address economic issues facing their countries,” Browning adds.

“These efforts expand upon our numerous programs aimed at connecting women — both our women clients and women within Bank of America to the tools needed for economic success,” Browning notes.

These include:

  • Philanthropic investments and leadership development programs.
  • Socially Innovative Investing, which includes the recently launched (proprietary) investment strategies for clients focused on women’s and girls’ equality.
  • The Women and Wealth program, which is focused on delivering solutions that meet the unique wealth management needs of women.
  • Socially responsible private equity investments for clients, focused on women business owners.
  • The bank’s Supplier Diversity and Development Program, which ensures that the bank seeks products and services from diverse businesses across the organization, including women-owned businesses.
  • Line of business councils, engagement forums, and an enterprise group focused on women’s professional development: Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Development (LEAD) for Women, provide women at the company with leadership opportunities and skills development.

For more information, go to Bank of America’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) website or U.S. Trust’s women’s website.

An example to follow can be gleaned from the December 10, 2012 article by Julie Fasone Holder written for the Huffington Post.

According to Ms. Holder at her site, she is the CEO and Founder of JFH Insights, Management Advising and a Board Member of Directors at Eastman Chemical Co.

In the article she explains, “In my position as founder and principle of my consulting firm, JFH Insights, and previously as Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Corporate Reputation at the Dow Chemical Company, I understand firsthand the sacrifices women must often make to accomplish what we set out to do.

However, what stands at the center of ensuring that more women reach the highest echelons of leadership in the workplace is one simple act: mentorship. Having strong leaders who helped guide and shape my career has been integral in getting me to where I am today, and it made me realize early on that women can and should strive for the top. While at Dow, I was a founder of the Women’s Innovation Network (WIN), a group of men and women focused on maximizing the professional contributions women make at the company. As a successful business leader, I consider it a top priority and responsibility to mentor the next generation of female leaders.”

Bank of America’s Global Ambassadors Program is founded on the importance and effectiveness of mentorship for businesswomen in the developing world. Approximately one billion women have the potential to enter the global workforce in the next decade, but only if given the opportunity to do so. article

Bank of America is committed to mentoring emerging women business leaders because mentoring has been proven to produce significant results for both the mentor and the mentee. Businesswomen often face exclusion from networks and conversations that can open the door to career development and promotions. By connecting regularly with women in leadership positions, emerging women leaders can further their careers and contribute to their local communities and economies.

Finally a perfect example of this plan in motion can be seen here. According to The World Bank, more than 70 million women have joined the workforce in Latin America and the Caribbean region in the last 20 years, and female income has helped alleviate extreme poverty in the region by 30 percent, demonstrating that gender equality is crucial to economic growth. However, there is still substantial room for improvement.

At FCI our hope is to continue to provide our readers in the international female wrestling community with ideas from corporations and female leaders around the globe on avenues that can improve their economic development.

The great benefit of becoming involved in mentor programs is that you don’t have to re-invent the wheel and it allows you to have an ear to helpful conversations and broad ideas that can improve your economic life that previously may have been closed to women.

If FCI is successful, the fully competitive women’s wrestling industry, primarily the freestyle and submission wrestling world is undergoing a cultural shift where all dignified women’s wrestling will co-operate and partner with one another to create an ideal market for corporations to advertise to.

Edita DWW Wrestler

Edita was a tough female submission wrestler who could compete in all styles victoriously.

Blessed with a lithe slender frame, soft brown hair and a sweet, quiet feminine demeanor, one might never believe that over the years the Czech beauty Edita was one of DWW’s top fighters of all time. article - DWW photo

My first introduction to Edita was watching her take on a mature, shapely Sonia who had the appearance of a sweet motherly type, but as we know, sometimes a mother’s love can be smothering and it seems like Edita found that out the hard way as she had no answers for Sonia’s close caress that ended in one erotic submission after another. Edita seemed on the verge of tears.

She would survive that and go to battle the likes of Petra, Luzia, Hana, Kriszta, Eva, Viktoria, Jana and other DWW warriors inside the Danube village and take on the likes of super star Nadege from outside the group. Though in a losing cause, her match against Tatyana at the 2000 Women’s Wrestling Convention in San Diego was a painful grind out affair that kept the audience glued to the ring.

A former freestyle wrestler, Edita possessed and mastered various styles of grappling used in matches that ranged from schoolgirl pins; straight wrestling, sumo wrestling and she even branched out into serious boxing matches as well. article - DWW photo

Edita loves variety in life. She especially has a love for seafood.

The DWW maidens plied their trade mainly in Vienna near the Danube so let’s visit Vienna with a focus on the sea. article - Wikimedia photo

The respected information source Wikipedia lays the foundation stating, “Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria, and one of the nine states of Austria. Vienna is Austria’s primary city, with a population of about 1.757 million (2.4 million within the metropolitan area, more than 20% of Austria’s population), and its cultural, economic, and political center. It is the 7th-largest city by population within city limits in the European Union. Until the beginning of the 20th century it was the largest German-speaking city in the world, and before the splitting of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in World War I the city had 2 million inhabitants.

Today it is the second only to Berlin in German speakers. Vienna is host to many major international organizations, including the United Nations and OPEC. The city lies in the east of Austria and is close to the borders of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. These regions work together in a European Centrope border region. Along with nearby Bratislava, Vienna forms a metropolitan region with 3 million inhabitants. In 2001, the city center was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Vienna is located in northeastern Austria, at the easternmost extension of the Alps in the Vienna Basin. The earliest settlement, at the location of today’s inner city, was south of the meandering Danube while the city now spans both sides of the river.

Vienna lies within a transition of oceanic climate and humid continental climate, and features, according to the Köppen classification, a Cfb (oceanic) -climate. The city has warm summers with average high temperatures of 24 to 33 °C (75 to 91 °F), with maximum exceeding 38 °C (100 °F) and lows of around 15 °C (59 °F).

Winters are relatively dry and cold with average temperatures at about freezing point. Spring and autumn are mild. Precipitation is generally moderate throughout the year, averaging 620 mm (24.4 in) annually, with considerable local variations, the Vienna Woods region in the west being the wettest part (700 to 800 mm (28 to 31 in) annually) and the flat plains in the east being the driest part (500 to 550 mm (20 to 22 in) annually). Snow in the winter is not uncommon, but rare compared to Western and Southern regions in Austria.”

Can a city located in a landlocked country like Austria have great seafood? In Vienna’s case the answer is emphatically yes!

The exciting travel site explains, “As Austria is a landlocked country, you wouldn’t expect the seafood to be as good as it is! Thankfully, it doesn’t take too long to travel to Vienna, and if you know where to go to eat it, you can still enjoy it fresh. article - Wikimedia photo

Places like the Inner City and Naschmarkt are the best places to enjoy the freshest seafood in Vienna, mainly because these areas make it their business to have the best and freshest ingredients and products. We recommend going for seafood at one of these places before anywhere else.”

If you can’t be next to the sea, why don’t you bring the sea home? Austria has done exactly that.

The adventure destination site highlights, “The House of the Sea displays tropical freshwater and saltwater fish, as well as fish from the Mediterranean and domestic waters, and sharks, all at a lofty height.

Austria’s largest aquarium is located in the House of the Sea: A 300,000 liter tank holds black and white tip sharks, bamboo sharks, and Puppi, a sea turtle. Another highlight since September 2013 is the 150,000-liter tank for the hammerhead sharks on the tenth floor of the former anti-aircraft tower. And the café on the 11th floor, which also opened in September 2013, grants visitors a breathtaking view of Vienna.

In the House of the Tropics and the Croc-Park you can see free-flying birds and free-roaming apes, crocodiles, and other animals categorized by habitat. In the terrarium section live poisonous as well as giant snakes, lizards, leaf-cutter ants, and tarantulas. And the Adventure Aquarium “Brandungsriff” lets children experience the tropical fish right up close through the “diver’s helmets” built into the floor of the aquarium. In an artificial stalactite cave grotto, you can observe over 100 animals and cave-dwellers which are active by night: poisonous giant millipedes, amplypigids and armored ground crickets, cave fish without eyes and scorpions that glow like ghosts under UV light.”

No doubt if she desired to, Edita not only could dine on every sea food imaginable but relax and watch it up close as well.

As a competitor, Edita is one that you love to watch wrestle up close. Like a chameleon, she can change styles at a moment’s notice, depending upon whether she has to raise her game to impose her will on a larger star like Petra or adapt her style to a newer ambitious youngster like Lenny who proved to be as tough as she is beautiful. Edita has the determination of a champion to execute all styles when needed. article - DWW photo

Her DWW family said it best when they described this stellar all-time fan favorite as an “All Style Fighter.”
