Podcast #132 Penny Thomas

    OntheMat.com proudly presents the FightWorks Podcast! The top Jiu-Jitsu, Submission Grappling, and MMA Podcast on the Net!

    Penny Thomas left her native South Africa behind to pursue better training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu years ago and after much hard work has captured some of the most coveted titles in jiu-jitsu and grappling, including gold medals at the 2007 Abu Dhabi Combat Club, BJJ Mundials, and Pan-Ams.

    In this episode of The FightWorks Podcast we sit down and learn her story, from an emergency spinal surgery at the age of 12 up to her inspirational performances in jiu jitsu competition. Penny will also answer a handful of great questions submitted by you, the Mighty 600,000 about:

    * training BJJ as a woman
    * vegetarianism
    * yoga and flexibility for jiu jitsu
    * of course, tons more

    In addition to our conversation with Penny Thomas, we will also review a couple of interesting emails sent in by the Family, and give an update on The FightWorks Podcast jiu jitsu gi patches.

    Oh and one more thing to Jay from New Hampshire, who called The FightWorks Podcast toll free number ((877) 247-4662) yesterday and left a voicemail for me to ask Penny about yoga and lower back pain: I interviewed Penny back on Thursday but I will try to put your question in front of her sometime soon! And above all, thanks for calling in!
