Azabela returns

This blog celebrates my youngest daughter’s mythical creation “Azabel the Green Reaper”, who sleeps with her sword. She screams and leaps as well. After years of wanting to be a woman warrior and of wanting a website or meeting place for other female fighters, I am finally taking action. Take notice.
Here is where I hope to revisit my collection of great women’s science fiction and fantasy, epic adventure characters and women writers. I make no apology for straying wherever my interest leads me, from inspiring films and paintings to real life female fighters I train with like Holly Fernley, 5 times world champion kickboxer, and Eleni, the youngest female Tae Kwondo junior blackbelt in Australia (she’s 6).
While I’m throwing down my metaphorical gauntlet, here goes for 2006:

  • Blackbelt
  • Sparring and my first ever tournament (or two)
  • Loss of another 10 to 12 kilos
  • Full splits (give or take a couple of inches)
  • Cardio – 3 rounds of 2 minutes non stop kicking
  • Friday Night Female Fight Club – training and socialising once a month with all the other women i’m running into.
  • plus keeping my daughters going till they get their black belts – which is probably before mine
