Hey All.. introduction here :)

Post  YoungAlaska on Tue Sep 01, 2009 8:14 am

Well, I'm not really good when it comes to talking about me.. Hmm.. Lets see..

My name is Ashlye (pronounced Ashley, just spelled differently) but everyone calls me Alaska. (long story lol)
Im a 26 year old female, born and raised in California.
Writing is my passion, music is my life.


I've been into MMA fighting since I was younger. My dad was into karate and all of that. Used to teach me when I was a kid. Grew up on the likes of Bruce Lee, Jean Claude and all the other Martial Arts movies you could possibly think of. I've been watching MMA for a while and it was in 2007 when I was first introduced to Gina Carano, on Fight Girls.
I used to always voice that I would love to see a woman who could kick butt and still be classy at the same time. Women weren't shown a lot of love in MMA. But Gina, she takes the cake. I admire her strength, her determination, and the fact that she is so humble. And of course, I love that she fights with her heart. Its something that she loves to do.

I've actually just started training (not even two weeks ago) and Im hoping that I can embody even half of the determination that she has. (Not that Im trying to fight professionally lol)

To say Im a big fan, wouldn't cover it...
Well, I think that's all for now.. Smile

Wanna know anything more? Ask Away. And I can't wait to meet more Gina Carano Fans like myself.

Welcome Ashlye, I like the spelling variation on your name, so just had to mention it. Very Happy From now on I'll call you Alaska.

I really enjoyed your introduction, and it's great to meet you. I loved what you wrote about Gina, and couldn't agree more. How did you come across this forum? As you can see we're still quite a small community, but hopefully that will change. I'd rather have a small community with people posting, than a large one with only a few posting... Smile

How are you finding the training?

Thankyou for the warm welcomes Wink

Funny thing, I was just on youtube watching a Gina Carano video *laughs* and at the end, the site scrolled across the screen. So I rewound it, paused it and here I am Wink

The training is ...more than what I expected. lol.
I love it, though. Honestly, I thought it would do me in the first day, but I am actually stronger than I thought.
I have the hardest time kicking with my left leg though. lol, But i'll get it soon enough.

And nothing wrong with a small community. Its better to get to know each other that way. The more people, the more confusing it gets.

Awesome, another Californian Smile

I listen to everything. Right now, Im really into Paramore.
But really, I listen to everything from the 40's and on. Ecclectic at best.

What about you?

Hello Ashlye, it's nice to meet you and have you on the forum. (:

Like Ang said, I love what you wrote about Gina. I couldn't agree with you more, you were definitely right on!
It's awesome that you began training and are liking it. I thought the same thing you though when I first started, but I underestimated myself in the sport. I use to be pretty slacking with kicking with my left leg, but the more you use it and practice with it, the faster the improvement. (:

Practice may not always make perfect, as the saying tries to persuade us, but it can certainly help us improve. The reason I don't agree with the quote I mentioned is because we can never be perfect, and if we ever reach the point where we think we are (in a sport, life, etc), that's when you know you're not. LOL, sorry for this theory, but for some reason this just came to mind. Maybe one day we can all meet and have some friendly fights. Razz

I agree Ang, no one can ever be perfect... It's just impossible. But like you said also, practice definitely can improve greatly. (:
