It would be really cool if next time you browse in the newsagents to check out my really intense interview with BJJ black belt Gazzy Parman:

A little quote from the interview:
I'm pretty proud of this one, but, erm, I made a little mistake that was too late to correct. you can read about it here:A decade ago female grapplers were few and far between. Often, they would have to enter men’s divisions just to get a fight. Gazzy recalls her experiences fighting against men:
“I did fight a couple matches against guys, one time I had a closed door match against Jeff Glover - haha - we were both white belts, nearly blue at the time and our instructors bet against each other as to who would win between Jeff and I. Well I ended up catching Jeff in a triangle choke and I submitted him! So my instructor won $20!
Anyway, it's still one of the most amazing stories I've ever had the honour of covering and I recommend reading it.
