My Prague trip was a turning point for me. Up against who I thought would be my toughest opponent yet and I wasn’t nervous before the fight. Many of you’ll know that this is a huge deal as I’ve always, previously, been a stupidly nervous wreck before all of my fem vs fem matches, every single one! It was an amazing feeling; not being nervous before a fight. I felt confident, a new feeling. And I didn’t lose. An Olympic winning, Romanian gymnast with the fiercest abs I have ever seen, who has four years experience in wrestling, even more years experience in fighting, did not beat me. Nerves have interfered with my fighting ability in all my matches, I’m certain of it. I hope this is a sign that I’m getting better or more confident, or just more badass.
Before Prague, my trip to New York to do a couple of custom videos with the Queen of Mixed Wrestling, Veve Lane and my trip to The Female Fightclub Berlin to meet the awesome Anna Konda may have had something to do with my new found confidence. Anna Konda and Red Devil really taught me things, off and on the mats. Anna Konda still pumps me full of empowerment and reignites my feistiness when things get a bit too much for me mentally. I had a bit of a tough time at Femwrestle in Cologne, all the travel in such a short space of time got to me, though I sure loved every single mixed wrestling session beyond belief. The ultimate session out there was a two hour epic match with an incredibly attractive older man who was impressed by my knowledge of punk and rock music, so much so, he went to get the speakers from his car so we could wrestle to his punk playlist. I didn’t want to leave. Berlin was my highlight though, Anna Konda and myself did so many fun things around the city and I enjoyed being filmed and interviewed by several news reporters, TV stations and online platforms. I even wrestled with a VICE reporter.
Sky Storm was certainly a challenge but nowhere near as much of a challenge as Red Devil in Berlin. I won’t go into details and spoil it for you, all I’ll mention is that our fight had to be stopped twice because of some accidental catfight-like behaviour. I’m trying to get a grip on that. It’s tough – either I stay in control and get defeated or I go for it, but if I go for it I lack control and my defences turn into involuntary slaps, kicks or shoves. I just get so riled up. I know I can’t be fighting this in female vs female. Sky Storm was cool with my uncontrolled feistiness, I talked more about that in my Fight Pulse interview.
Sky Storm and I stayed in a plush hotel, shown around the stunning city and put into taxis when we were tired. The producer of Fight Pulse treated us so nicely. Being treated well when visiting wrestling production companies around the world makes so much difference; being physically, mentally and financially looked after is why we were able to fight so well and so hard, and why we did so with such big smiles on our faces. Prague is so much cheaper than London, so by shooting with Fight Pulse there’s only gain; a great experience and exposure. If that isn’t incentive enough to go, the male wrestlers at Fight Pulse are, hands down, by far, the hottest male victims I have everhad the pleasure of squeezing. My fight with Frank is up there in my top 3 mixed wrestling matches (not yet released). I would encourage other wrestlers to go.
I can’t wait to return to Fight Pulse to fight other girls, especially as I have a much anticipated match, off camera, with the producer who Sky and I beat up, just briefly. I really want to wrestle him properly. I need a rematch in Berlin too; I’d love another go at Red Devil when I have a bit more experience and muscle behind me. My rope bondage wrestling film with Veve Lane in her studio in NYC was also really fun, I hadn’t been tied up like that since I joined the London fetish scene ten years ago, it was strange being submissive again. It showed me how much I had changed.
