Great message by the young lady, Sasha Reynolds. She describes her experience with competing in Jiu-jitsu against boys and girls. The part which stands out is how wise she is for her age.

Reynolds discusses the mental and physical aspects of competing against both genders. Her initial feelings when she had to face a boy for the first time and the stereotypical attitudes of people towards the ‘’boy vs. girl’’ scenario.

People’s words had an influence on her mentality, but she soon found out that words are cheap regardless of the outcome and overcame them by competing. It is more beneficial to build experiences and opinions with ‘’skin in the game’’ rather than listening to others.
