WORLD CHAMPION INSPIRES BUSINESS OWNERS AT HIRSCH’S BALLITO
North Coast Businessmen and women recently got together at the Hirsch’s Ballito store for their monthly business networking event with an excellent turn out of business owners and representatives getting together for a great networking session.
Ballito resident, EFC Flyweight Women’s Champion, Amanda Lino was the guest speaker for the morning. Lino made history by becoming the first female in the world to hold the title of EFC flyweight champion and spoke about her daily routine and the hard work that she puts in to keep fit which includes gym and yoga, meal preps for the week and MMA training and Jitsu in the evening. Lino spoke about her passion for MMA and how she has used it as a platform to promote self-defense for women while giving all the ladies in attendance at the event a few self-defense demonstrations.
Speaking about her journey and the hard work that she has put in Lino commented, “It was really difficult in the beginning – and with this being a male-dominated sport, there were always doubts about whether a woman could make it,” and how she started in a little gym to now being in bigger and better premises offering her KO Fighting fitness courses and training sessions, proving that you can achieve your dreams by starting off small and dreaming big!
