Lindsey F5 Muay Thai Kick South Paw

Lindsey throws her signature left body kick in Wed 6:30pm Muay Thai Class

In this member spotlight is all you ever wanted to know about Lindsey. For those of you who train with Lindsey you know that she is always positive and encouraging. If you have had the pleasure of sparring Lindsey you are sure to know the effects of her powerful south paw straight left cross. Something you may not know about Lindsey is that she is a former Rugby player and Shorin Ryu practitioner with a rank of Shodan (which automatically makes her pretty bad-ass). She also has one of the funniest twitter feeds I follow ( @NinjaLinZQ ) and she not so secretly is the voice of Kimura @KimuraNinjaCat on twitter.

We asked Lindsey to answer our member spotlight questions because she is a dedicated Muay Thai and strength student. She shows up every week Monday, Wed and Saturday to take Muay Thai and Fighter Fit classes and she has made big improvements in her sparring in the last year. She always works hard, even if she occasionally has a smart-ass remark and we love her dearly even if she does over share about her cats sometimes. ūüėČ

Of course when we emailed she gave us some not so serious answers. I’ve included them here for your amusement… and then her slightly more serious answers below the silly ones. The entire email is actually hilarious, so it remains unedited. I promise I am not just lazy, it’s good….Enjoy!

 

Oh dear, Member Spotlight? ‘We think its¬†important for all of our¬†members¬†to get to know you!’ Really?¬† Me?¬† I mean let’s be serious the only person anyone needs to know is Kimura. ¬†ūüôā
And how do you pick just ONE picture of me, I mean that’s like trying to pick out a cupcake at Crumbs, IMPOSSIBLE!¬† I think a collage is totally the way to go here, ¬†ya know a fun pick, a serious pick, and then a selfie (of course), cause the hipsters love that. ¬†ūüėõ
Soooo….I tried answering these questions¬†seriously¬†and I couldn’t, I’m SORRY!

Since Sept 2011
Where are you from? 
Los Angeles
Occupation?

Why did you start training at F5? 
My dojo closed down and I needed an outlet that wasn’t a belt based system to fill the void.
What goals have you accomplished?
I lost ten pounds of “fluff,” I am now able to do back-to-backs (those are rough), my cross is a winner!
What keeps you coming back? 
I have so much to work on, like my rear kick…it’s awful.¬† It’s like watching a pirate swing his peg leg around (terrible!) and Kimura.
