Penny Mitchell Star Wrestler

Surprises in life are wonderful aren’t they?

What are some surprises that you were elated about in the past?

Was it a blind date set up by a friend where the person met was far better than expected? On a test score you scored far higher than originally thought? You bought a property and when it came time to sell, the market value was at least 25% higher than what you estimated? You come home from high school and there is a car in the driveway and you find out it’s yours?

Other times we love consistency.

The secret to winning is constant, consistent management.….Tom Landry

Think of some of the areas where that is desired.

Foremost is the behavior of someone we love in our important relationships. Time tables in the business world in terms of office hours, customer service and product reliability are essential. The ability of our car to get us from point A to B every day is mandatory.

What I loved about the great 1980’s wrestler Penny Mitchell was that she was very consistent in her wrestling performance. She didn’t exhibit over the top characters but you knew whoever stepped into the ring with her was going to get a great workout; and you as a fan, your money’s worth.

I also loved the way that Penny looked in a full bathing suit with her strong sexy legs that fit perfectly in her wrestling boots.

I saw photos of her wrestling my favorite sweet shapely Pittsburgh Princess, Angie Minnelli in what looked like an extended ground war and the shots of those two shapely beauties in battle was priceless.

Penny’s other contemporaries where Judy Martin, Debbie Combs, Leilani Kai, Candice Pardue, Velvet McIntyre, Desiree Peterson, Peggy Lee Leather and of course the great Fabulous Moolah.

Her battles against Moolah are legend. There were lots of flips, body splashes and chokes but Penny always managed to come up a little short.

For me the challenge isn’t to be different but to be consistent.…..Joan Jett

Penny hails from Springfield Missouri.

Springfield is the third largest city in the state of Missouri and the county seat of Greene County. According to the 2010 census data, the population was 159,498, an increase of 5.2% since the 2000 census. The Springfield Metropolitan Area has a population of 436,712 and includes the counties of Christian, Dallas, Greene, Polk and Webster. Springfield’s nickname is the Queen City of the Ozarks and is known as the Birthplace of Route 66 as well as the home of several universities including Missouri State University, Drury University, and Evangel University.

Thank you Wikimedia.

That’s a good starting place but there is so much more to do in Springfield. The educational site springfieldmo.org shares the expansion. “Venture out during the day. Play among Missouri’s many natural wonders on a weekend getaway. Visit an amusement park, see a show or take in a festival. Head to Branson and back. If you enjoy the outdoors, you’ll find more than 7,500 miles of shoreline along accessible lakes and floatable streams and rivers within minutes of the city. Urban trails, conservation areas, hunting, camping and fishing are never too far away.

At night, the town is yours. Springfield offers a unique mix of large-city amenities and hometown hospitality evident within great restaurants, museums and an eclectic mix of shops and attraction. There’s something for everyone, and always with a pace that encourages you to take your time. To enjoy the surprises around each corner.”

Let’s appreciate our tax dollars at work as springfieldmo.gov reassures you that your decision to visit Springfield is a good one.

“Welcome to Springfield, Mo.!

With more than 440,000 people in the metro area, Springfield is where the rolling hills of the Ozarks plateau form a surprisingly modern and green city.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, Wikimedia photo

A “big, small town,” Springfield offers a great blend of fascinating attractions, historical treasures, sports excitement and cultural and leisure activities in a welcoming environment. The city offers 102 parks, including a linear trail system that integrates with the city’s growing on-street bike route system; an airport; an art museum; a zoo; the Springfield Lasers professional tennis team; the Springfield Cardinals minor-league baseball team and is home to Bass Pro Shops, Missouri State University, Drury and Evangel universities and the Assemblies of God USA.

Springfield/Greene County is the only municipality in the nation with a Gold Medal Award-winning parks and recreation department, American Chamber of Commerce Executives Chamber of the Year award and accreditation in law enforcement, fire, emergency management, environmental services and public works.

Springfield Public Schools is Missouri’s largest fully accredited school district.  More than 24,000 students attend 36 elementary schools, an intermediate school (grades 5-6), nine middle schools, five high schools, Phelps Center for Gifted Education and an Early Childhood Center.

The school system offers more than a dozen programs that cater to the diverse needs of students, including the International Baccalaureate program, Wonders of the Ozarks Learning Facility (WOLF), and the Middle College Program. All five district high schools are designated Missouri A+ Schools.

Casual dining, upscale bars and restaurants, antique shops, trendy clothing, art galleries and a public art and sculpture tour make downtown Springfield a great place to live and visit.”

For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.……Tony Robbins

Penny was willing to take her lumps and bruises for the cause but some of her signature wins in singles matches were over tough lady pro Judy Martin. Some of her greatest tag team triumphs was when she partnered with Velvet McIntyre to defeat the powerful duo of Joyce Grable and Wendi Richter, otherwise known as The Texas Cowgirls and when she teamed with Susan Starr they surprisingly gained a major victory over Judy Martin and the all-time champion, The Fabulous Moolah.

Penny Mitchell was a steady performer that will always be remembered with admiration. Her consistency in the squared circle along with her talent and beauty propelled her to the category that those of us who enjoyed her professionalism knew that she would someday attain.

Legend.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

In a trade known for promoting unrealistic airbrushed images, Aerie is taking a position as an industry leader for change by becoming a key sponsor of the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).

Aerie,the intimate apparel line, has partnered with NEDA as the lead sponsor of the non-profit’s ongoing national walks awareness program, NEDA Walk. Save a Life, which raises funds for advocacy and educational programs, spreads awareness about the seriousness of eating disorders and provides support for the local community. NEDA holds more than 65 walks each year in cities across the nation.

Aerie has already made a corporate commitment to body-positivity in its advertising and marketing materials by pledging to no longer retouch models in any way. The brand recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of its #aerieREAL campaign.

“We applaud Aerie for taking the lead in healthy body image through its #aerieREAL and #LoveYourRealSelfie campaigns,” commented Lynn Grefe, president and CEO of NEDA. “This can be a significant game changer for the fashion and advertising industries. We know that over-the-top ads promoting extreme thinness and non-stop diet promises send a message to teens and young adults suggesting that they are not good enough –  translation: not thin enough –  and sadly fuels the fire of low self-esteem. Research has shown that low self- esteem is a serious precursor to unhealthy eating behaviors and eating disorders.”

“Aerie has already shown a commitment to change,” she continued, “with ad campaigns that highlight a range of body types. Their approach was not only socially responsible, but also resonated with the public and was profitable. We hope others will learn by their great example.”

“We’re thrilled to be the first national retailer to support the National Eating Disorders Association,” said Jennifer Foyle, chief merchandising officer of the Aerie brand. “This partnership is a perfect fit for our brand. We look forward to joining thousands of young women in supporting NEDA at walks across the country and to sharing resources and information with our customers to help reduce the stigma often associated with eating disorders.”

The Facts …

In the U.S., 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life – including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder – with anorexia having highest fatality rate of any mental illness.

Of American elementary school girls who read magazines, 69 percent say that the pictures influence their concept of the ideal body shape and 47 percent say the pictures make them want to lose weight.

It is estimated that, in the U.S., 19 percent of adults and three percent of children are on a diet on any given day. Forty-two percent of first-through-third-grade girls want to be thinner and 81 percent of 10-year-olds are afraid of being fat. More than half of teenage girls and nearly one-third of teenage boys use unhealthy weight control behaviors.

Even among clearly non-overweight girls, over one-third report dieting.

Dieting causes such side effects as stress, anxiety, depression, irritability and low self-esteem—and dieters often gain back the weight they lose. Thirty-five percent of “normal dieters” progress to pathological dieting. Of those, 20 to 25 percent progress to partial or full-syndrome eating disorders.

About the National Eating Disorders Association

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), headquartered in New York City, is the leading U.S. non-profit organization supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. NEDA serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care. Each year, NEDA helps millions of people across the country find information and appropriate treatment resources through its toll-free, live helpline, its many outreach programs and website. NEDA advocates for advancements in the field and envisions a world without eating disorders. For more information, visit www.MyNEDA.org

AT&T Great For Women

What was your first job out of college? We all remember it well. Hopefully it was a great experience for you.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - Wikimedia photo

If you are a female with strong career aspirations and are looking to work at a great dynamic and innovative female friendly company; look no further than AT&T.

At Female Competition International we travel the globe to bring you news and information that might be of help to your life, health and career.

Let’s walk inside of AT&T and in terms of their female friendly culture see what’s been happening of late.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - wikimedia  photo

One of the reasons that women prosper at AT&T is due to their sensational internal mentoring and networking programs. Let’s listen in on womenofatt.org.

“Women of AT&T, Inc. (WOA) is organized to connect and inspire members to achieve their personal and professional goals and to affect change in the community.

Women of AT&T provides an avenue for women to develop and demonstrate their leadership abilities. WOA ensures professional and personal development for continuous growth, advancement and success through education, mentoring, and networking to benefit both the individual as well as the corporation.”

That’s a great start. Let’s dial up some more female friendly good news.

Ashley Mejia is a junior at the Bronx School for Law, Government and Justice in Bronx, New York. Ashley is part of Summer Search New York City, a national youth-development nonprofit program.

She expresses “Attending the Women in the World event was an amazing experience. Not only did I get to witness strong women express their natural rights, I got to hear their stories.”

fciwomenswrestling.com article - wikimedia  photo

This occurred on April 3-5, 2014, female leaders from the worlds of business, politics and entertainment gathered in New York City for the 2014 Women in the World Summit. For the second straight year, AT&T helped sponsor the event. Several of AT&T’s top female executives attended the summit.

That is an event that you might want to one day attend for inspiration and valuable contacts.

There is nothing like first-hand experiences to help influence us to make better decisions. If something works for someone that we admire and respect, why shouldn’t it work for us?

For some face to face experiences from women who work at AT&T, here is what we found at http://att.jobs/doing-great-things/atts-women.

Kristan Jones

“AT&T is quite a large company, which can sometimes be intimidating. However, my experience with AT&T has been eye opening and rewarding. I have been able to learn so much about myself and the career I want. I have had a unique opportunity to lead in multiple facets across the company and learn from strong leaders.”

Ms. Kristan Jones-Scales is a Senior Brand Advertising Manager

Ami Shah

“I am proud to work at AT&T because it is the oldest American telecommunications company with a legacy of connecting people and, after over 100 years, continues to do so today. With the ground-breaking new technologies coming out every day, there is no limit to what AT&T can do to continue to help people connect. The innovation at AT&T continues to expand to connect people not only to their loved ones, but their work, home, cars, hobbies, etc. There really is no limit, so stay tuned!!”

Ms. Shah is a Senior Business Manager IT

Krishna Valluripalli

“I love working at AT&T because it is very diverse and is constantly innovating to meet customer demands. AT&T provides a vast array of opportunities to explore your career interests and help you figure out your passionate areas of the business. Annual ERG conference in Dallas, TX provides a powerful opportunity to network among employees including senior leadership in an open and welcoming environment.”

Ms. Krishna Valluripalli is a Lead Channel Marketing Manager.

At this point, why don’t we turn our cell phones off and allow the leadership at AT&T to speak for themselves.

Wait a minute. I hear someone’s phone beeping. Oops, it’s mine. Okay. It’s off. Let’s listen in.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - wikimedia  photo

“When you become part of AT&T you are joining a network of 90,000+ women who connect across all AT&T organizations, locations and disciplines. The Women of AT&T (WOA) Employee Resource Group is an independent 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that is organized to connect and inspire its members to achieve their personal and professional goals and to affect change in the communities where we do business. WOA is the largest ERG at AT&T with over 16,000 members and 43 chapters. One of their many purposes is to promote an environment that recognizes the value of women’s contributions both internal and external to AT&T.”

Cementing its reputation as a stellar company to work for and buy communication products from, this announcement was posted February 26, 2014.

AT&T* earned top honors at Mobile World Congress, winning two awards at GSMA’s 19th annual Global Mobile Awards.  The recognition reflects AT&T’s commitment to deliver a best-in-class customer experience while constantly seeking opportunities to keep customers connected to the most innovative products and services.

The Global Mobile Awards honor the most innovative products and services in eight main categories spanning the areas of mobile apps, consumer devices, connected life and infrastructure. More than 680 submissions from around the world were judged by a panel of distinguished industry experts, media and analysts assessing innovation, functionality, implementation and overall value.”

Well it’s almost time to end this call. Before we do; let’s remind ourselves why so many of us have admired AT&T over the years.

“AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) is a premier communications holding company and one of the most honored companies in the world. Its subsidiaries and affiliates – AT&T operating companies – are the providers of AT&T services in the United States and internationally. With a powerful array of network resources that includes the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network, AT&T is a leading provider of wireless, Wi-Fi, high speed Internet, voice and cloud-based services.

It also offers advanced TV service with the AT&T U-verse® brand. The company’s suite of IP-based business communications services is one of the most advanced in the world.”

Are you convinced? You should be. If you are a female looking for a great lifetime career we just have one thing to say…….

The phone is ringing. Please answer it.

Indra British Wrestler

Just as most of us don’t like clichés and formulas in movies that we have pre-high expectations of; as sports writers when we have total control of our reporting situation neither do we want to engage in the same behavior we so often see in the film industry.

The challenge is that it’s hard not to.

In many ways constructing an article is like building a house or working in a factory. Certain production elements need to be present. A house always needs a foundation, strong framing, windows and a roof; a story needs an introduction, transition sentences, a body that supports your point and a conclusion that sometimes calls for action.

Female Competition International is not a hard news source but we are also not a purely fluff manufacturer either. When it comes to extremely good female wrestlers or others at the opposite end of the spectrum who are not, the structure of the article takes on a straightforward simplicity based upon the competitor’s records.

Indra of Doom Maidens and London Wrestling Studios is not an easy formula fit.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, Indra's Twitter photo

Why not?

Based upon her record we cannot say that she is really good or really bad.

Assessing her behavior during matches we cannot say whether she is ascending or otherwise.

We will stay with the FCI prime directive which is to promote the interests of the female wrestling industry and the competitors as well.

Regarding Indra, this is the easy part.

First of all, she is very feminine and extremely gorgeous. Her wrestling skills are solid and she has a certain unique charisma. Her relationships with both doommaidens.com in New York and London Wrestling Studios in England are to be admired. Our research shows that she has been traveling back and forth across the pond at least since 2011.

The compliments regarding this beauty flow like the Atlantic on a calm sunny day. Here is what doommaidens.com had to say. “Indra is a tough and cheeky wrestler from the London Wrestling Studio. She’s fun, clever, and strong for her size. And she’s got a nasty streak!

In addition to wrestling, Indra has earned a brown belt in Karate and is a trained kickboxer. She’s best known for her intense leg strength and scissor sessions. She also has experience with Domme activities and can blend classic domination in with her wrestling sessions.”

Here is what a very happy customer had to say about a session experience with our adventurous princess. “Indra is without doubt one of the best kept secrets at LWS. Had a one hour session with her today, and was totally blown away with Indra’s level of fitness throughout the match.

Indra’s head scissors are deadly and I can say without doubt, if she has the hold locked on you will certainly have to tap-out at some point or face knockout.

Also as you may have already gathered Indra is no shrinking violet, expect to feel like a shadow of your former self as you are verbally emasculated by Indra’s cutting taunts. Indra’s defense has massively improved since I saw her compete in the mixed matches nearly a year ago. It is evident her BJJ training in the Big Apple has made her a very tricky opponent indeed. It was a rare defeat for me with Indra winning one to nil.”

Well done indeed.

Good for her.

Based upon what I’ve read, if I ever have the opportunity to visit VeVe Lane’s New York company; Indra is someone I’d love to meet and session with. Truly.

Opportunity though is the operative word here and as we examine Indra’s competitive wrestling in terms of her focus, questions arise.

Let’s detach this from Indra.

Is the window of opportunity irrelevant in women’s submission wrestling?

For those of us have played or coached sports at a high level, we know the window of opportunity is everything. They open for so long and if you don’t furiously climb through you and the others you have bled, fought and teamed with have to live with the gathering storm clouds swelling with tears of sadness.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, Indra's Twitter photo

Finally it rains. Even during the longest drought, it eventually does.

Sometimes it flows at the strangest times and places. No matter how you try to shove it back to the dark recesses of your mind there is always some reminder that pops up out of nowhere to push the elevator back up to the top floor.

Trust me; it’s anything but a game.

Friendships often end. Not because of anything wrongly said or done. It’s just that you remind each other of severe failure.

It’s too painful.

On the other hand, when goals are surpassed you are friends for life.

I’m from Texas. I love the Dallas Cowboys. When I watch these current Cowboys with the superbly talented Tony Romo as their leader I sense the window is closing. This writing is as of October 25, 2014 and Dallas is off to a sizzling 6-1 start. As thrilled as I am for them there is a part of me that is terrified that if they don’t make a strong run and at least get to the Super Bowl this year, during Tony Romo’s reign, they most likely will not.

I hope they do, more for my sake than his.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, wikimedia photo

Given all the records Mr. Romo has broken and the other worldly performances he has dazzled us with, can he honestly say in the privacy of his thoughts that if he doesn’t get to at least one Super Bowl that after he retires he won’t be quietly devastated?

I will be for him and myself.

It’s not that I just want the Dallas Cowboys to win the grand prize. After all of the disappointments I have shared watching the magical QB, I want Tony Romo to win one too.

It will be life affirming.

This is what troubles me about the modern world of women submission wrestlers.

For many there seems to be no concern about their window of opportunity. You’re only young once and when you are young since you’ve never had any experience of being older and broken, it seems like you are bullet proof and will be young forever.

You won’t. It’s real. Everyone gets older and broken. Physically is bad enough.

Spiritually and emotionally are far worse.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, wikimedia photo

It’s less painful though if you have successfully climbed through your categorical closing windows with passion.

I’ve been on both sides and it is so painful when you know you will never get a second chance. In the quiet darkness of your dreams which provides you with the illusion you will, there is still a quiet underlying dread. Even deep in REM, you know it’s a dream and at some point you will wake up to your real life unbearable pain.

Indra has wrestling credentials up the yen yang. She’s a kick boxer and skilled in Karate. Tuff stuff for sure. The problem for me is that I virtually never see any of it on the competitive mats.

I’ve seen Indra wrestle Laken, Athena, Jennie Vaughn and Justice. The most telling match for me was her struggle with Jennie Vaughn at Doommaiden’s 2013 event. At first it started the way most of Indra’s matches start and end; with a lot of chatter and giggling. At some point it took on a very serious tone for Jennie and she began to punch and woman handled Indra while our sensuous world traveler lay flat on her back.

Well, well, well. Ms. Vaughn, our former Flamingo snail mail VHS jobber has clearly grown up.

Respect earned and deserved.

Simply put, Jennie upped her game while Indra was content to spar. Instead of Indra jabbing, there was more jabbering.

(Said in a whisper) 2011 plus 2012 plus 2013 plus 2014 and this is the best that…………….?

Calm down you plead. So what you say? It’s just for fun right?

Then why in the world are you reading a thousand word article?

Don’t get me wrong. For me, Indra is not Tony Romo or Texas A&M disappointing. Hey she’s not even “fantasy session wrestler girlie chick; I only do this fetish for the money” disappointing. I’ve never personally met her so this isn’t personal.

This is my baggage. Not hers.

I’ve been in the brutally competitive elite high school sports world where my charge ran in the fiercely challenged men’s 100 meter track and field events and after six years when all the dust had settled he finished as the number one ranked senior in the most populated state in America. The alpha among California’s 2008 most elite race horses. It’s just a game right? How often do I think about what our team did?

Every day.

Often, even when young, it’s later than you think. It’s not just age that retires you. Competitors get injured. Women get married. The other life calls and the phone won’t stop ringing until it’s answered.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, wikimedia photo

It’s hard to see great talent being………..well you know what I really want to say, but I won’t say it. It violates FCI’s prime directive and we certainly wouldn’t want to do that now would we?

Let’s end this before I stray too far.

Yes, it’s very foggy here in Northern California, but you know what?

Like Mr. Johnny Nash so eloquently expressed; we can see clearly now.

Final memo to our LWS princess. Sweet beautiful girl?

Your window to greatness is closing.

Thunder LWS Grappler

She’s blessed with beauty and power.

LWS wrestler Thunder is developing into a female grappling force.

fciwomenswrestling.com article -London wrestling studio photo

This Kiwi is a tall, shapely, strong, big girl sexy and battle tested. Her won loss record is stellar. She’s a wrestler other girls are already wanting to avoid in real competition. In the 1990’s, this would have described the incredibly sexy dark brunette from New Zealand named Lisa Marie.

Not the case here.

There’s a new Kiwi in town and her name is Thunder.

After watching Thunder compete at three sites and online, FCI’s scouting report describes her as physically tough, aggressive and at times unforgiving. She’s not beyond dominating a weaker opponent. What’s frightening for the rest of the female wrestling field is that Thunder clearly has not peaked.

Here is the accounting of this rising star presented at thunderwrestlingamazon.webs.com. “From New Zealand Thunder, came to London to begin her wrestling rise to fame. Starting at London Wrestling Studio Thunder learnt for the best and quickly rose to one of the most popular wrestlers. Since that fateful day 10 years ago Thunder has metamorphosed from a tall, gorgeous blonde to a tall, SUPER strong and muscular gorgeous blonde.”

The widely respected female wrestling organization London Wrestling Studio has presented top flight women’s wrestling events and features some of the best competitors from around the globe.

Here is what they had to say about this New Zealand princess.

“Over the last couple of years, THUNDER has become more muscular than ever – thanks to a punishing fitness regime. Consistently popular, we have found that Thunder attracts more repeat custom than any other wrestler at LWS. This is partly because she really goes out of her way to cater to all session requests and her customer service is second to none.

Also as many of you have found out, she is exceptionally strong for a female and is able to lift and carry men of up to 100 kg in weight. THUNDER’s wrestling has really come along over time and we would recommend her to any customer.”

That’s high praise indeed.

I’ve never been to New Zealand before. But one of my role models, Xena, the warrior princess, comes from there”.……..Madeleine Albright

Let’s fly to New Zealand and briefly take a look at the village that created this formidable grappler.

The United States CIA reports, “The British colony of New Zealand became an independent dominion in 1907. Over the past 20 years the government has transformed New Zealand from an agrarian economy dependent on concessionary British market access to a more industrialized, free market economy that can compete globally. This dynamic growth has boosted real incomes.”

fciwomenswrestling.com article - wikimedia photo

The dynamic educational source Wikipedia relates, “The country geographically comprises two main land masses – that of the North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and the South Island, or Te Waipounamu – and numerous smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga.

Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity of animal, fungal and plant life. The country’s varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand’s capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

Before the arrival of humans an estimated 80 percent of the land was covered in forest, with only high alpine, wet, infertile and volcanic areas without trees.

The endemic flightless kiwi is a national icon. The forests were dominated by birds, and the lack of mammalian predators led to some like the kiwi, kakapo and takahē evolving flightlessness.”

Now let’s add some color.

The official travel site newzealand.com exudes, “Thousands of kilometers of coastline, lakes and rivers herald New Zealand as a water sports mecca.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - wikimedia photo

Sailing, surfing, diving, fishing – Kiwis love the water and we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to water activities. Indulging your passion for the water is easy to do here in New Zealand and limited only by your imagination.

You just have to go to any beach or wharf to see how popular fishing is in New Zealand. There’s a fish and a fishing spot with your name on it. If you’re up north you can expect to catch snapper, kingfish and tarakihi. In the far south, you’re looking at blue cod, trumpeter and grouper for your dinner. Snapper is the prized fish for most sea fishermen. Go snapping as they call it and you could be looking at a fish in excess of 10kg.”

From Maori culture to hiking in pristine green covered mountains to watching the stars in dark night skies unobstructed; we have just scratched the surface of all that you can do in New Zealand.

New Zealand is not a small country but a large village”.……..Peter Jackson

One of the natural experiences you can enjoy and most likely will never forget on your next trip to London is to engage in some Big Sexy Girl wrestling with Thunder. Here is what one satisfied customer had to say.

“My first experience at LWS was with Thunder and although I was quite nervous, she put me at ease straightaway and after a few wonderful lift and carries, I felt great and the whole session was really exhilarating. Thunder is so strong and made all the lift and carries seem effortless…I’m definitely making another booking soon!”

This writer can say that I have clearly seen improvement in Thunder’s wrestling. You are only as good as your competition. When a wrestler is winning constantly, the question becomes what is the skill level of the opponents?

At the British site where she has a long standing resume, she boasts a winning record against respectable competition like Shelby Beach, Kassidy, Minxy Li and Star to name a few.

It was when she had her way with the widely respected journey level fighter Dynamo that I knew she was for real.

There’s always excitement in the air when a star is rising bright against a dark magical sky. Make no mistake about it, when it comes to her matches, Thunder can not only lower the BOOM!………….

She strikes with lightening as well.

Daniela DWW Grappler

The Slavic-German goddess Freya is the Goddess of abundance, desire, love, fertility and spring. Also Freya is the incarnation of wisdom and healing.

With an electric personality complete with a constant soft smile and strong feminine legs, in terms of the total package, which DWW maiden was like watching Freya reborn?

fciwomenswrestling.com article, dwwgalaxy.com photo

Daniela was one of DWW’s sexy big girls who had an impact whenever she wrestled.

Daniela loves life. That’s good. She should. She’s young, so she’s got a lot of it ahead of her.

I have a confession.

Daniela was my DWW guilty pleasure.

I would love to say that I admired her wrestling most, which I did, but she had some of the most beautiful robust feminine thighs I have ever seen. She was tall, shapely sleek with an infectious smile and a fresh face framed with long soft brown hair that could influence anyone to have her as a friend.

For her mind of course.

Daniela loves film. That being the case, let’s expand on the guilty pleasure theme.

It was 1968 and the masterful Director, Norman Jewison was up to his old highly effective tricks. The movie line says, “A debonair, adventuresome bank executive believes he has pulled off the perfect multi-million dollar heist, only to match wits with a sexy insurance investigator who will do anything to get her man.”

It sounds good. True? That nice description doesn’t remotely do Mr. Jewison’s gem, The Thomas Crown Affair justice. For the title roles you need two beautiful people with exceptional charisma.

Enter Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway.

Guilty pleasure? Yes. Steve McQueen’s character was a James Bond who didn’t have to defy orders upstairs because no one gave him any. As a wealthy bored businessman he could design his own rules. He was sharp as a hair thin razor, wealthy beyond belief, highly analytical, possessed a great sense of humor, showed no fear, exuded charisma, women found him irresistible and yes, men ( I) wanted to be him.

Above all?

He was a big time risk taker and loved to play games.

Guilty pleasures are fun because it’s not so much what it’s about; it’s more about how you feel when you are intoxicated with its dream like vapors.

Daniela had that effect on me.

She certainly did her work on the mats. She took on all comers, mostly big sexy feminine girls and even had somewhat of a rivalry with Luzia the Great! Probably her most memorable and shining moment came when she took on the beautiful, resourceful and deceptively skilled American MMA princess, Grace of Virago fame and as the expression goes, “had her way with her.”

According to the DWW site’s database, Daniela is retired now but I suspect would have had a much longer career had she not be shackled by severe knee injuries.

The DWW group is located by the mighty Danube River in Vienna. As of this writing since we have already paid tribute to Luzia and Hana and plan on sharing more of our important DWW memories with the world by highlighting more girls in the future, let’s stay with our theme and view the magical city of Vienna through the eyes of pleasure, with no guilt.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, wikimedia photo

Let’s get this party started with an introduction from the site wien.info. They share, “Dancing and “chilling” of the highest quality – after all, Vienna’s electronic music scene is world-renowned. Clubs such as Flex at the Danube Canal were selected as one of the best locations worldwide. The program there varies as much as it does at other party locations in the city.

The Gürtel establishments in the City Rail Arches such as Chelsea, B72 and Rhiz have been permanent fixtures on Vienna’s nightlife scene for years. A new party strip is developing in the Prater with Fluc and Pratersauna.

The Gürtel’s stellar popularity was triggered by the Chelsea. Its landlord, a former professional soccer player, had the courage to open a bar there when the area was still a red-light district. Live bands and DJs serve up Britpop, punk and related genres. The differences between Chelsea and its neighbors are clear at a glance. For one thing, it lacks the standard glass façade. The rhiz bar, just a few steps, makes no secret of the goings-on inside. This is home to the Vienna electronic scene, and it is not uncommon for the music to come courtesy of a laptop. A groovy sound is available in the neighboring Loop, which is a mix of bar, club and lounge.”

The cool site inyourpocket.com adds, “Of all the wonderful things that Vienna has to offer, nightlife is not the least of them. There is something for everyone in this town, and we mean everyone. From trendy bars to Irish pubs, lounge clubs and underground locations, offering all kinds of nocturnal fun you might be looking for.”

fciwomenswrestling.com article, wikimedia photo

Regarding club Flex, it continues, “For more than 15 years this club has been famous for underground parties in Vienna. With one of Europe’s best sound systems, every event is unforgettable. About two years ago Flex started to change its image from very alternative to a bit more hip. But no matter who you are and how you are dressed – this club is definitely a place to dance a night away.

With a wicked sound system and world class DJs, the new Grelle Forelle may have a cover charge, but by the time you leave you’ll swear you would have paid much more to get in. Take a break from dancing in the chill-out lounge.”

We could go on but please go online and view Vienna night life. We suspect Daniela probably did since as a former team volleyball player and wrestler, she is very athletic and probably can dance her pretty head off. According to her bio when asked what alcohol she likes she says ALL OF THEM! That combination makes for a great night out on the electric German town.

In a time period where good hard submission wrestling was hard to find and expensive to seek out, Daniela and her fellow DWW warrior maidens really provided us with the sweet fix we needed. I can’t tell you how many times this writer read a sales line on a video match from another company, took the risk and ordered it, waited forever to get it by 1990s snail mail and either got stiffed or it was a massive dud.

DWW matches by contrast all delivered a bang!

The nice thing about a guilty pleasure is that it delivers the goods and more. The Thomas Crown Affair is a cool movie you can watch over and over and over. Daniela of DWW is a cool wrestler whose energetic matches you watch over and over and over as well.

Daniela? We hope you are dancing the night away in wrestling retirement.

Some may find beautiful women wrestling erotic in nature. If you find that offensive the DWW site may not be for you.

Sapphire Atlanta Wrestler

Sapphire has the right mental outlook to continue her ascent.

When a Northern California female high school tennis player finished her sophomore and junior varsity campaigns, she possessed won, loss records of 4-10 and 3-11. When one of our associates agreed to coach her before her senior season, they worked together for 10 months, sometimes practicing twice a day for hours at a time in 100 degree weather during the summer.

Once her senior season began she was 1-0, then 3-0, then 5-0, then 8-0 and then 13-0 before she finally lost a match. The most telling statistic was that all matches were won two sets to none. No three set fire fights. She would eventually finish the season with a 16-4 record, lead her high school female varsity team to the playoffs for the first time in school history, battled her way in to the league’s final four championships and was named team MVP.

When asked what plan he used to turn her around, her coach stated, “I used football principles. Double sessions, study film, running and perseverance. You see, no matter what the sport, the principles of life never change.”

Perseverance.

When this writer first saw FWA (Female Wrestlers of Atlanta) leader Sapphire wrestle, since she was new, I was certain she was going to lose.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, FWA commons

The setting was beautiful sunny San Diego at the Marriott Hotel which hosted Jackpin’s masterpiece 2008 Women’s Wrestling convention. It didn’t help that she was going up against the ring veteran and dynamic super star named Krissy; the Pennsylvania Princess from Ring Master Girl.

As the two ladies stared at each other in the middle of the ring, I was a little surprised by Sapphire’s confidence as she didn’t blink once. When the match started, I soon began to see why.

Given the styles of both fighters, it turned into a ground war that went back and forth over and over. When it was completed, both hands were raised as it ended in a tie.

I would eventually catch up with Sapphire wondering if she knew what she had just accomplished. She was very young, shapely and down to earth. As we walked, her long dark hair flowed in the soft San Diego breeze like fine silk. Many times she could have tapped out and I asked her why she didn’t and she signed, “I just told myself not to give up.”

Many of the newer girls at that memorable convention no longer wrestle but given Sapphire’s personality, it’s no surprise that she didn’t quit this great sport.

Currently Sapphire is one of the leaders of FWA based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Along with the fem competitor Devon and Jackson they produce a variety of wrestling matches including fully competitive female vs female.

Atlanta is truly one of the great American cities that I’ve always loved to visit, so let’s do that now.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, wikimedia commons

The official site of the city, atlantaga.gov, gushes with enthusiasm, “It’s an exciting time in the City of Atlanta. Every year, companies are voting with their feet and choosing Atlanta as the destination to expand their campuses and build their headquarters. Over the past four years, companies have discovered what makes Atlanta a thriving, vibrant, and international city. Atlanta remains home to the world’s busiest passenger airport, and we are the leader in global and domestic air transportation.”

The sound information source Wikipedia explains, “Atlanta is the capital of and the most populous city in the U.S. state of Georgia, with an estimated 2013 population of 447,841. Atlanta is the cultural and economic center of the Atlanta metropolitan area, home to 5,522,942 people and the ninth largest metropolitan area in the United States. Atlanta is the county seat of Fulton County, and a small portion of the city extends eastward into DeKalb County.

Atlanta is the primary transportation hub of the Southeastern United States, via highway, railroad, and air, with Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the world’s busiest airport since 1998.

fciwomenswrestling.com article, wikimedia commons

Atlanta is considered an “alpha-” or “world city”, ranking 15th among world cities and sixth in the nation with a gross domestic product of $270 billion. Although Atlanta’s economy is considered diverse, dominant sectors include logistics, professional and business services, media operations, and information technology. Topographically, Atlanta is marked by rolling hills and dense tree coverage. Revitalization of Atlanta’s neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Olympics, has intensified in the 21st century, altering the city’s demographics, politics, and culture.

Encompassing $304 billion, the Atlanta metropolitan area is the eighth-largest economy in the country and 17th-largest in the world.

Corporate operations comprise a large portion of the Atlanta’s economy, with the city serving as the regional, national, or global headquarters for many corporations. Atlanta contains the country’s third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies, and the city is the global headquarters of corporations such as The Coca-Cola Company, The Home Depot, Delta Air Lines, AT&T Mobility, UPS, and Newell-Rubbermaid. Over 75 percent of Fortune 1000 companies conduct business operations in the Atlanta metropolitan area, and the region hosts offices of about 1,250 multinational corporations.

Many corporations are drawn to Atlanta on account of the city’s educated workforce; as of 2010, nearly 43% of adults in the city of Atlanta have college degrees, compared to 27% in the nation as a whole.”

Thank you Wikipedia. Atlanta is powerful, beautiful and smart too.

Hey, that describes Sapphire as well!

I’ve watch a few of Sapphires matches and she is definitely fond of the ground struggles. Having said that, she is very competent at mixing it up in the boxing ring as she did with Krissy in San Diego.

Female Competition International (FCI) is very happy that Sapphire made a decision to stay in the game and turn wrestling into a long term project.

One of the great football coaches Vince Lombardi was quoted as saying, “Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.

This principle applied to female tennis and certainly applies to women’s wrestling too. The principles of life are universal.

If Sapphire continues to take on all competitors, partner with a team of dynamic female wrestlers and persevere, like her experience in San Diego, many more exciting women’s wrestling events will have her on the marquee and her wrestling future will continue to be as bright and prosperous as a busy Atlanta summer sun.

Fem Wrestling Bulgaria

Ina Black is a beautiful Bulgarian powerhouse that wrestles with the heart and skill of a champion.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - Wikimedia photo

Swelling with confidence, dialed in with determination, packed with energy and confident in Plan A, the female wrestler strides head up towards her match. Upon arrival at the mats, she takes one look across the way and see the stately Ina Black and sighs silently……….

So much for plan A.

Ina Black, a sensuous female powerhouse with a wrestling victory slate as long as the Danube can do that to you.

When watching her wrestle, her technique is sound, her skill level high, and her grit and determination is very apparent. The extra weapon she has that is not hidden, and she doesn’t always have to use it, but she can pull it out whenever she wants, is the ability to overpower virtually anyone at will.

[pullquoteright] “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
……………..Abraham Lincoln
[/pullquoteright]

This writer has seen her wrestle for a number of companies and has great admiration for her efforts in that she never mails it in. It’s 100 percent, every time.

Bulgaria is her village and what a fine job the community and the parents who raised her did in terms of empowering her with the skills to succeed.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - Wikimedia photo

The excellent travel site Wikitravel initiates, “Bulgaria is a country in the Balkans on the western side of the Black Sea. It is surrounded by Romania to the north, Serbia to the northwest, the Republic of Macedonia to the southwest, Greece to the south, and Turkey to the southeast. Being located close to the Turkish Straits means the key land routes from Europe to Middle East and Asia pass through Bulgaria.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - Wikimedia photo

Bulgaria is one of the few exotic nations of Europe, due to the fact that it boasts sublime beaches, lovely churches, winter sport opportunities, to name a few. Although it is not regularly visited compared to other European nations, it is a beautiful place, with a wide range of activities for a traveler to do.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - Wikimedia photo

The Bulgarian language is related to Serbian, Russian and other Eastern European languages, but contains many international words. Bulgarians use the Cyrillic alphabet which can make the task of getting around the country somewhat difficult if you aren’t familiar with this alphabet as most signs are written in it. However, getting acquainted with the alphabet isn’t very difficult and may save you a lot of trouble, especially as many common words are homophones of English or French words.

fciwomenswrestling.com article - Wikimedia photo

Also, as Bulgarian education emphasizes foreign language studies, especially English language, it wouldn’t be a problem to talk and find information in English in bigger cities. It’s best to turn to the young population for a direction or an advice.”

Much appreciated wikitravel.com.

When Ina describes her combative career you can understand why her ability to over power, out smart and intimidate is mostly par for the course. She states at WB270, “”I’m known as Ina Black with some fantastic grappling skills. I am a recent graduate of The National Sports Academy in Sofia. My specialty is in coaching Sambo, the Russian grappling martial art. I’ve been competing in Judo and Sambo since I was 12, and have been national champion in Sambo no less than seven times – as well as taking third place in the World Championships! I’m also an instructor for Taebo. I speak English and Russian.”

[pullquoteleft] “A champion is afraid of losing. Everyone else is afraid of winning”……Billie Jean King[/pullquoteleft]

The respected female wrestling site foxy-dolls.com where Ina is featured has this to say; “We believe she does not need a presentation, because she is one of the Top 5 Best Competitive Wrestlers in the heavy weight category.

She is a champion of judo and sambo and for the last 5 years she performs in the world of submission wrestling, gaining wins one after another. Lots of times girls have declined wrestling with her out of fear, but the fact is that she can be very careful and gentle and defeat the opponents without injuring them or threaten their health in any possible way. She loves dominating and showing that she doesn’t fear the heavier opponents.

At the same time she is very funny and friendly person and shows great attitude towards everybody. She loves the sea and lying on the beach. She loves animals, rock music and beer. Her favorite drink is the wine.
Her philosophy is that woman’s strength is in her weakness, but this provokes her to show that she could be as competitive, strong and technical as the guys who she wrestles with.

For Ina wrestling is not just a business. Wrestling is her life!”

One of the premiere women’s wrestling groups in England, Monica’s Wrestling Center had this to say as well, “Ina Black is a Bulgarian beauty with some fantastic grappling skills.”

Gentlemen, if you love wrestling a beautiful powerful young woman you can contact wrestlingmonica.com to schedule a session.

Ina has the reputation of being willing to take on any competitor and her glorious list includes matches against the formidable Kassidy, German super star Anna Konda, American champion and sensation Ariel and she is so ambitious she even took on her own sister Lidiya!

[pullquoteleft] “Everyone has a plan ’till they get punched in the mouth”………Mike Tyson[/pullquoteleft]

Just when you think you have viewed and appreciated all of the current female submission wrestling champions that the world has to offer the rough and tumble wrestling of a super star like Ina Black lets you know your list is woefully incomplete. The scary thing for her opponents is that Ina is a very young woman, loves the sport, is determined to improve and very clearly has not remotely peaked yet.

Whether you are a man or woman and you’ve made the decision and mounted the courage to wrestle Ina Black, you had better pack Plan A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K……………..
