5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT SUNNA
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF TRAINING LIKE?
My training routine is a bit unorthodox in terms of that I train on variable times but I try to get at least two training sessions that focus on fighting each day. One session with the Mjolnir MMA competition team, and then one session where I can focus on specifics, be it striking, wrestling, BJJ or whatever else. Then I try to mix it up a little bit. Some days I do Yoga. Sometimes I go swimming and then whenever I can I do things out in the wilderness, like hiking or just getting lost in nature. I consider that an active rest.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU AS A FIGHTER
Love is what motivates me as a fighter. First and foremost it is my daughter, my family and my friends that motivate me. I think of them when I enter the cage and I feel their strength clearly. Then of course my love for the sport motivates me. There is nothing that I would rather be doing and I feel that fighting is my destiny!
WHAT GOT YOU INTO MARTIAL ARTS?
I was a 115 lbs, blonde girl working late nights, serving at bars and driving a taxi. There were more than a few instances where I felt that I might be in danger so I decided that it´d be a wise move to learn how to defend myself. That turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. I started off in Muay-Thai but I soon became curious to try other martial arts as well. I have loved combat sports from the first time I ever stepped into a gym..
