Hi! I’m Ashlyn

I hold a black belt in Karate and a blue belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I have dabbled in competitive Jiu-Jitsu and hopes to pursue more competitions in the near future, as well as MMA. I also hope to draw more attention to the importance of women in martial arts and build a strong community in the Springfield area.
I got into martial arts because I wanted to learn how to defend myself. I planned to do it for six months. Somehow, it became the most amazing journey I have ever dared to embark on. I train because I will never let anyone take anything from me that is mine ever again. My martial arts training teaches me to fight when I need to, and fight for what is rightfully mine – my confidence, my truth, my honor, my respect – my person.
In my spare time, I enjoy writing, sharing her story on social media, connecting with local women, cosplay, and Star Wars. I also take every opportunity to train that I can.
