5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ANGELA HILL
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF TRAINING LIKE?
I wake up at 5:30 am, i eat a nutritious breakfast of 12 eggs that I gathered from my yard, 6 slices of ezekliel bread with a side of homemade pickled jalapeños. I then spend 3 hours on the wing chun dummy practicing forearm strikes and strengthening my shins while the rest of the team works on their wrestling. At noon I head to the forest to hunt lunch. Depending on the day it could be anything from rabbit stew to Brahmin steak. After a quick cat nap it’s back to the gym for more palm strike training and meditation. I usually spend about 2 hours in the cryogenic chamber to recover (however if I don’t have any fights planned soon I’ll freeze my body entirely for up to 6 months to preserve myself ala demolition man). At night I like to relax by lighting some candles and sitting in an ice bath while listening to Norwegian black metal.
WHAT GOT YOU INTO MARTIAL ARTS?
I had just gotten married and all my husband and I did in our free time was eat pizza and play video games, so we wanted to get more active. I always wanted to learn how to fight, but I thought kickboxing would be less intimidating than boxing. A friend suggested Muay Thai, so we tried a class and we were hooked.
WHAT PROFESSION OTHER THAN YOUR OWN WOULD YOU LIKE TO ATTEMPT AND WHY?
Before fighting I was working as an animator for a small studio in NYC. My other dream job would be to create a successful animated series.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HIDDEN TALENTS?
Admantium skeleton. You can’t see it because it’s a skeleton but it’s there.
IF YOU COULD BE ANY FICTIONAL CHARACTER, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?
I’d be Storm from X-Men because there’s no other black women to choose from.
