  1. Hey there! I have a website mainly for female BJJ. I am a 42 yr old blue competitive blue belt, my insite is a little different due to my age. I think people who enjoy your site would enjoy mine as well. What can I do to get a link on your page? Please check out my site Thanks Leslie

  2. The 10-year-old from Los Angeles, California, literally got thrown
    into the sport. The tine extent between purple and blue belt
    is aropund two years again, as similar to brown and after that to black.
    Activities such as cheerleading and dnce may indeed be great
    exercise for girls; however, the primary attraction
    tto these activities iss far more the visual spectacle than any kind of female strength oor empowerment.
