Here's a pic of some no-Gi work with @jaxjazzfan1190 getting her ready for her 1st submission only pro grappling fight at Onnit International 9, which was this past Saturday.
I have intentionally not posted anything showing us training as to keep our stuff under wraps. It was my understanding that her opponent was a good wrestler and excellent with leg locks on the ground. With our preparation, we were able to completely shut both of those aspects down using good movement, balance, patience, and technique.
As I get pictures and videos downloaded from my video system and pics her coworkers took during the fight, I'll look at posting some of that stuff.
We were told she was an underdog and was expected to not just lose, but lose quickly.
Yeah... that didn't happen. Jackie controlled and dominated (in my op6, but I'm bias) the fight for 7 or the 8 minutes until they were reset to the middle of the mat. On the reset, the referee didn't allow her to regain the isolation and grip on her opponent's foot. He only allowed a general grip on the leg. This led to her being defeated. We didn't see it that way. We saw it as a win.
It was a super awesome fight and I am super proud how she represented Team Haas Judo Jiu-Jitsu. She carried herself with honor and integrity.
Inspired by the poetry of Dulce Maria Loynaz, the latest exhibition by María Magdalena Campos-Pons is titled ‘Like the lonely traveler.’ The second part in the Neon Queen Collective’s introduction of Campos-Pons’ work to @utaustin, ‘Like a lonely traveler’ opens this Friday at 6pm!
Hope to see you there! 🤟🏼

Has anyone else read this?! I read the back of it and immediately categorized it into “easy read, probably a little romantic” and let me tell you, I HAVE NO IDEA WHATS HAPPENING. What a great book. I am only half way through and I’m completely obsessed, I have no idea what’s going on or what direction it’s going in and I CANT. STOP. READING. I can’t tell if she isn’t mentally stable, delusional, a woman in love, or possibly just so type A that she had no sense of reality? Hopefully I get some answers upon further reading!
I’m going to be posting a list of the past books I’ve posted on my story and what I loved about them! I have had a lot of questions about some that I’ve posted so I hope it helps! It’ll be up by Friday.
The Scout Guide Austin released today and I’m feeling honored to be in it. I’ve always appreciated the curation and design of this publication so it was a dream to be featured. Shoutout to @petrifieddesign and @paigenphoto for making this shot happen.
Look for the blush pink cover around town! ✌🏼
