I have been competing in Taekwondo for so many years after achieving the Black Belt, and every time I stepped to compete against my opponent, I felt like we are all puppets trying to test our strength and skills hurting each other to entertain the audience that came to cheer for us, or because we need to prove to the World that we are the best!!
I have won 20 Gold Medals.
Martial Arts have built my Confidence, Strength and discipline. The Traditional Powerful Teaching and Methods that the Martial Arts have are Timeless.
One time I was getting ready for a fight and my opponent came to say Hi and I couldn’t look her in the eyes.
I told her; You can’t do this!! We are about to fight against each other now. She said; So what?! We can’t be friends? I said; You don't Understand, I can’t hurt you if I become your friend. That was the hardest fight I have ever had after that talk we had in the changing room. I couldn’t hurt her in the match. My coach kept screaming and yelling at me to hit her, but I couldn’t turn into that Monster!! I just had a connection with this girl. How can I hurt her?! I took off my helmet that day and throw it on the ground announcing that I Quit!! The audience went on complete silence. I questioned the intention behind the competitions after that. Why am I competing?! To prove what?! and to whom?! I know I am strong enough and capable of defending myself. I will NOT Hurt others anymore!! When I used to step into a fight, I saw the anger in my opponent’s eyes before we even start the fight. Filled with hate and anger. Trying to focus on winning and forgetting that we are all Humans and we should never ever hurt each other. They turn people into Monsters!! People with their Bad systems Turn People into Monsters!! Thats Why when I created SheFighter, I wanted to teach a proper Martial Arts System where all the power and knowledge you learn from the training is used to EMPOWER yourself, spread LOVE and SERVE others.
