Laken, Great UK Wrestler

Every time that I watch an enjoyable film about dance, it reminds me of some of the great dancers in our female submission industry like Laken.

One such movie was Chicago. article, photo

Chicago is a 2002 American musical comedy crime film based on the musical of the same name, exploring the themes of celebrity, scandal, and corruption in Chicago during the Jazz Age.

The film stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renée Zellweger and Richard Gere, and also features Queen Latifah, John C. Reilly, Christine Baranski and Lucy Liu.

Nightclub sensation Velma (Catherine Zeta-Jones) murders her philandering husband, and Chicago’s slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn (Richard Gere), is set to defend her. But when Roxie (Renée Zellweger) also winds up in prison, Billy takes on her case as well — turning her into a media circus of headline.

Directed and choreographed by Rob Marshall, and adapted by screenwriter Bill Condon, Chicago won six Academy Awards in 2003, including Best Picture. The film was critically lauded, and was the first musical to win Best Picture since Oliver! in 1968

Blessed with talent, the United Kingdom female submission wrestler Laken is a dancer and grappler who loves the lens in part because she looks so good in it. article, photo

At her Twitter she also makes it clear that she is ready to win.

She is a session wrestler too. Would you like to have a session with her? She welcomes you at her site, “Hi guys and dolls! Originally a trained dancer, I stumbled across wrestling about 2 years ago. Since then I have been training and improving my skills and strength.  I love all aspects of session wrestling, especially squeezing a head between my thighs!

I session in London, however I do travel, so keep an eye on my twitter for updates. I offer filmed sessions as well as customs. Get in touch for more info!”

Well you asked for it so we will give it to you. Here is the more info.

It is presented by the fun group that she wrestles with in London who express, “We are delighted to be the Production Company that handles and manages Laken Fire’s custom clips. We hope she doesn’t make our cameras melt! article, photo

A successful career trained dancer, Laken took up wrestling just over 2 years ago. Since then she has trained and improved her my skills and strength to match her beauty.  She loves session wrestling, and squeezing a heads between her thighs. (!) Oh My…”

Laken is available for video work and sessions.

Her previous customers love her. Here is one such review.

“I booked Laken to join another wrestler in a double session – the whole experience was first class. Arranging and in the run up to the session – you could not ask for it to be easier to deal with Laken. On the evening itself, the hour flew by, Laken is a bundle of fun, energy and cheek – added to that a very competent wrestler.”

Sounds like he sure had fun.

Since her initiation she has a steady rise in the number of matches, facing Justice, Minxy Li, Amethyst, Luna, Louise, Venom, Mystique and others to name a few.

Whenever a beautiful new wrestler comes along, you wonder if she has staying power and Laken clearly does.

So if you are in London and you love dance, where would you go for some nearby restaurants after the show?

One such place is Taylor Walker. They welcome you are their site stating, “We’ve been providing the best British pub food and drink to the people of our great cities for over two centuries. Today, the same things are as important to us as the day we started; great quality, freshly prepared food, your favorite pub drinks and friendly service in a relaxing British pub with a welcoming atmosphere.”

The reviews seem to speak to their great customer service and success.

“If you are looking for a typical English pub you can’t miss this one. Fantastic atmosphere and great scenario. If it’s crowed you need to wait before eating. Too people chatting and drinking as in any classic pub!! We took the Big Ben burger and the classic fish and chips, so so so good!!”

And here is another.

“Very nice people. Very good fried fish (fish and chips). The fish was excellent. Good beer. Great experience and now I could say that we had fish and chips in London. The place was in front of the National Gallery.”

The exciting aspects of visiting and having a session with a submission wrestler in London are varied.

Laken continues to impress to say the least. She’s beautiful, athletic, talented and improving in her grappling skills.

One day the dance world should make a movie about her.

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. 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 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 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.

Wrestler Vixen – Femwin

Is there anyone out there that can create a time machine?

You would be in huge demand in this circle. If you could take me back to England about 12 years ago where Festelle produced it’s fully competitive women’s wrestling events; name your price. I know she’s going to be there.

She entertained even when behind. She smiled even when getting woman handled. Win, lose or draw she kept the audience captivated. It’s too bad her career only lasted from 2003-2005.

What was it about Vixen that made us love her? article, photo credit

She’s always in my wrestling thoughts, sometimes whirling in out of nowhere. It must be in the sub-conscience. Curvy as a Pacific Coast Highway, feminine as a Southern Belle on a humid day and wild as a teenage girl in full parental rebellion complete with tattoos.

I miss Vixen.

She took on some tough customers in Sarah, Silver, Kirsty, Chichiro and Lucretia. When she took on Tracy in what amounted to a brutal catfight, I wondered what in the world Vixen was thinking of. Straight wrestling with no hair pulling would have been a safer choice.

Does Vixen ever play it safe?

Admittedly our London Princess struggled early in her career, so much so that female submission wrestling industry leader Femwin had this to say about her.

“In early 2005 Topstars considered dropping Vixen from their promotion because she hadn’t won a match and hadn’t shown the necessary aggressiveness to be a submission wrestler. However, in March of 2005 this girl from London, England wrestled at our Surrey tournament and was much more impressive than she had been previously. Not only did she show up looking very sexy with a more toned body she also displayed a lot of confidence and wrestled aggressively.”

My favorite match was when she mounted an attack against the Japanese free agent Elli. Here was the description of the match.

“Festelle’s own Vixen takes on another Japanese girl Elli in a gritty trial of strength. Elli elects to fight in a dress which does little to conceal the fairly brutal woman beneath. Vixen however proves up to the challenge.”

Have you ever heard the expression that good girls like the bad boys? Sometimes it can be the other way around. I wouldn’t say Vixen was a bad girl but I sense a very independent one. Like watching a movie actress you’d love to have an adventure with, I’m certain many male customers felt that for Vixen.

I deeply miss Natalie Wood.

If there was ever an actress that played the ill-fated beautiful young lover to perfection it was the San Francisco born thespian. The expressions of excitement, the sighs of despair and mostly the ability to project profound sadness made watching Natalie’s films at times unbearable.

Her master pieces include Miracle on 34th Street, Splendor in the Grass, Rebel Without a Cause, and West Side Story. Another one that got panned by the critics but still could tug at heart strings was This Property Is Condemned where her character against all odds decides to take a risk, leave her small town and find love in New Orleans.

So much of life is about taking risks and pursuing adventures with beautiful strangers while you are still young.

Our young beauty Vixen is from London, England. article, wikimedia photo

Even without a time machine, let’s travel back and look at London in 2003 and in some ways understand the culture that helped form our Festelle maiden. article, wikimedia photo

So much has happened in between but do you remember this as reported by

“Britain witnessed its largest demonstration yesterday when an estimated one million protesters took to the streets of London to oppose the looming war against Iraq.

Those taking part in the London protest included the Rev Jesse Jackson, Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London, and leading names from the world of show business, including Harold Pinter, the playwright, and Harry Enfield, the comedian.”

This historic event reported in scorched the headlines as well. “At least 35,000 people died as a result of the record heatwave that scorched Europe in August 2003, says an environmental think tank.

The searing August heat claimed about 7000 lives in Germany, nearly 4200 lives in both Spain and Italy. Over 2000 people died in the UK, with the country recording is first ever temperature over 100° Fahrenheit on 10th August.”

As they have proved for decades, the British youth have been innovators in music and fashion. Vixen began her wrestling career in her early twenties and her stylish hair-cuts and unique body art were an indication of her charismatic fashion sense.

Though later she would be in the thick of it, hotly contesting any match, in the early phases of her wrestling career what often captivated audiences was Vixen’s shapely hips and feminine response to her matches. At times, when she was getting soundly dominated by another feminine woman, it was as though Vixen would melt into her arms conceding one submission after another.

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go”……………T. S. Eliot

Beautiful as she was, she probably was not the mirror image of the girl the conservative British lad would take home to mum yet by the same token he couldn’t resist her.

In Natalie Wood’s timeless gem, Splendor InThe Grass, the character Bud, played by Warren Beatty did not imitate what Natalie’s character did risk in the film This Property Is Condemned. Instead he played it safe. He had a chance to run away with his true love and allowed family pressure to shackle him. It was a decision both teens never truly recovered from.

Part of the lure of the women’s wrestling world when you attend a session or an event, is that you are allowed to participate in and be enveloped by the fantasy world where dreams often come true. It’s the remote tropical island that most dream to escape to from their stressful real lives that aren’t what they hoped for.

Youthful Vixen was a girl to dream about.

She had an air of complexity, daring and non-conformity that matched her beauty. She didn’t seem to be for the faint of heart. That’s the magic in adventures with unpredictable girls. Nothing is guaranteed. article, wikimedia photo

What I learned in my youth from the memory passages I love to relive as opposed to the many where I played it safe and choose not to remember is a timeless poem by Hannah Kahn: article, wikimedia photo

Ride a wild horsewith purple wings
Striped yellow and black
except his headwhich must be red.

Ride a wild horse
against the sky – hold tight to his wings

before you die
whatever else you leave undone
ride a wild horse
into the sun.

In my dreams, I’m young, it’s 8pm, and Vixen is waiting, wondering if I’ll really have the guts to show. Not only do I show, no luggage in tow, I’m dressed in black, except for the eyes in my head, which must be read. I briskly take her hand held out like a wing; clasp it tight, we run wild, screaming down the bustling London street towards the departing train…….

And never look back.
