One woman who has made her mark in the world of combat sports is Alexa Grasso. Grasso who hails from Mexico, recently made history as the first Mexican-born World Champion at UFC 285. Grasso’s historic win has not only shattered the glass ceiling for Mexican fighters, but also proves that women can hold their own in a sport previously dominated by men. Her hard work and dedication to the sport have made her a role model for women across the globe, proving that with passion and determination, anything is possible.
Another woman who has proved herself to be a force to be reckoned with is kickboxer Tiffany van Soest. Van Soest is a two-time word champion in both kickboxing and Muay Thai and has earned a reputation as one of the most skilled and unstoppable fighters in the world. Her dedication to the sport and her unrelenting work ethic have helped her achieve greatness in the ring, and her success serves as a reminder that women can compete at the highest levels in combat sports.
As more and more women take up kickboxing, the sport is evolving to better care for their needs, by providing a safe and supportive environment in which they can explore their physical potential. Kickboxing is of course a fantastic way to improve physical fitness, but also aids massively in improving your mental wellbeing. It is a full body workout building agility, and endurance, but at the same time works as an excellent stress reliever to help you manage the challenges of daily life.
While there are still barriers for women to participate in kickboxing, International Women’s Day is an excellent opportunity to celebrate the many women who are already making their mark in the sport. Inspirational women like Grasso and Van Soest, are not only breaking down gender barriers and stereotypes, but they’re inspiring and carving the foundations of the next generation of female athletes. By supporting and encouraging women in kickboxing, we can help to create a more inclusive and diverse sporting world in which women can thrive.
So, ladies let’s be real- who wouldn’t want to join in on the fun of kickboxing? It’s the perfect way to release any pent-up stress and aggression while getting a full-body workout. Plus, who doesn’t love the feeling of power when landing a perfectly executed roundhouse kick?
Gone are the days when sports were a male-dominated realm. It’s 2023, and women are making their mark in the ring. Don’t be afraid to let your inner badass shine through!
