Side note - they know Hope Vitellas, all 3 trained under the same instructor ("Master Lek") and went to Thailand together, so Hope's stuff may not be so bad, it just seems more recreational in focus (as fighting might screw with her music career).

The way I understood it is that he's currently looking for a certain type of person to join his gym, so I guess it's more of a comfort issue then anything. I don't really know myself but I'll find out early next week and will update thread.

Also, there are several photos of Kru Hope with Master Lek throughout the studio adn I don't think they were Photoshopped.
I don't have a problem believing she trained with whom she said, what I have a problem with is that I can't find anything anywhere about a verifiable fight record on her.
Lots of cuties in Short North LOL.
Sorry about the delay. Got a PM about this thread.
Basically neither Ashly nor myself have heard of this girl.
Doesnt mean much. Womens combat sports is only recently becoming even the tiniest blip on the radar at all and if you name off a fair number of women fighters from ye olden days I probably wouldnt know them. But there you go.
