Professor Cindy Hales practices Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and an instructor from Washington. She was once a professional MMA fighter and now runs Sleeper Jiu Jitsu in Seattle.
I like to show people that if you do these things, you may not win. But, you'll get these great stories and adventures and you'll internally learn about your self. You don't really need a medal.
Professor Cindy Hales is a late-bloomer when it came to discovering the martial arts. She started her training in Jiu Jitsu at 26 upon finding a Marcelo Alonso gym on her way home from work after watching UFC tapes of Royce Gracie. With a single-minded pursuit, she chose to continue with her training above everything else. Her fierce passion and relentless determination for the art allowed her to bounce back from serious injuries and to also give back to the community through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Professor Hales is currently holding classes in her gym, Sleeper Jiu Jitsu. Listen to find out more!
