It’s been less than a month since Roxy’s fight for the Strikeforce 135 pound belt, but that doesn’t mean she’s been sitting idle. She was back to training shortly after the fight, and today had this promising bit of info to share:
I know I have weaknesses in fighting.
I work everyday to strengthen and fix them, and so far I’ve done a pretty good job of prevailing.
Yet after my slam in the previous Strikeforce Challengers, it became blatantly apparent that I’m not going to be able to prevail with what I have anymore. I’m being surpassed.
I usually go the AACC on Thursday morning, but today I borrowed Miyata’s gym “Brave” in Kitasenju and trained for two hours with trainer extraordinaire: Sean Frew. I met him when he helped Celine Haga prepare for her fight in Jewels. He also knows Joachim Hansen. It was the best private training session I ever had in my entire life.
He added technique after technique to my arsenal. He worked with me and gave me things I can use that would suit my style. He answered questions about form in very easy ways that made sense to me. Sometimes I left my Japanese trainers scratching my head. But what he said went directly into my brain. And he taught me some strength and conditioning drills. I was so bone tired afterwards, but I knew it was good.
That, along with Tony “Pato’s” schedule/training advice……I knew it was what I needed. and I know.
I WILL NOT BE SURPASSED.
Of course, if you’d like to help Roxy in her quest to continue kicking ass, we do have a new RoxyFightSchool shirt along with 63Fight wear in the store goin at 2 for $30. All proceeds go to Roxy, who I’m sure will be appreciative when factoring in the extra cost of training to be THE BEST OF THE BEST.
