Two lady warriors that I have had the great pleasure of both training with and interviewing - Ana Maria India and Gazzy Parman have their own little fan-made highlight videos.

Here's Ana Maria's:


Ana Maria India - BJJ & MMA - Highlight [HELLO JAPAN] from Hello Japan on Vimeo.

It was made by fellow blogger Stuart Jones, who produces the Hello Japan (http://hellojapan01.wordpress.com) blog. Stuart trains in Manchester and is a purple belt. Of Ana Maria, he says:

"I trained at the Minotauro Team in Rio de Janeiro for 6 months in 2008, where I met Ana Maria in the Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu classes. She was really cool to me and I was inspired by her dedication to training and Jiu Jitsu, she is a very technical grappler. I learned a lot about her through the interview on your website and thought it was really cool how she started training and dedicating her life to Jiu Jitsu. In my spare time I like editing fighter highlights and seeing as there were so many videos around of Ana Maria, I thought why not make a video of her best moments. So I did and I hope everyone enjoys it."

I noticed he posted the video on Facebook and Ana Maria herself said: "“Wow! Many thanks, I loved it a lot” ~ Ana Maria India.

Cooooool!

Gazzy Parman also has a really cool highlight video made by a fan. The video is called 'Beautiful Assassin' and I nicked that headline for my own interview with Gazzy - which is coming out in Martial Arts Magazine on December 5th. It's my best interview ever so look out for it!



Gazzy did more than just 'like' this video, she...well why don't we let Gazzy explain for herself:

"The most impressive fan I've ever had in my life, has now become a good friend of mine. I didn't know who he was when he contacted me on myspace to have me check out the "Beautiful Assassin" highlight video he made. I was nearly in tears when I first saw it. He touched my soul when he made the Beautiful Assassin highlight clip of some of the things I've done. I couldn't believe someone would spend so much time making such an amazing highlight clip of me.... he did such a great job for the few fights if mine he could find. The music is spot on and the feeling he gave it really shows off my soul. I love him him forever for that. He's called Zen Monkey on YouTube, real name Jakub Bobrowski, from Poland."

Now that's what I called a 'like' !!!

Oh yeah, Gazzy's coming back to the UK in December - watch out for seminar dates to be announced soon.
