“I train because I love MMA, and I want to challenge myself. MMA is the ultimate challenge physically and mentally, and want to become stronger and stronger. When something hurts, I just smile and carry on because I don’t allow myself to forget my goals.”

5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ROXANNE MODAFFERI
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF TRAINING LIKE?
In the morning, I do a 30 minute mitt session with coach John Wood and then participate in team MMA practice. After that I go home and collapse from exhaustion. In the evening, I will either take the night off or doing yoga or lifting weights. When I’m not training, I’m either eating ice cream/froyo or watching Japanese anime.
WHAT GOT YOU INTO MARTIAL ARTS?
Initially, I started martial arts because I enjoyed seeing TV super heroes fight the bad guys. Then, I became motivated by the desire to get stronger and better in everything I do. I also excelled at academics, especially linguistics.
