Meg poses in a fighting stance

The Gracie Invitational at the SENI exposition in May 2008 was my first BJJ competition; I also competed at the Kent BJJ Open in that year, shortly before a second knee injury took me out of that part of the game. I won my first fight by arm bar and below is a video of my second bout against Zoe Hull of Pedro Bessa BJJ; I took home the gold that day. This was an exhilarating experience which taught me a lot about myself and what I can be capable of under pressure.
