Right now, I am just living and loving life. Even though my training schedule is pretty hectic, I am having the time of my life preparing for the worlds, getting ready to go to perform in Virginia for the A.I.M USA group down there, and trying to fit in time to hang out with all my friends. I really cannot complain, I do what I love, and I love what I do! School is ending in 5 short weeks, and then I will be free to train and condition at my own pace.... well, kinda. :0) I am still training on Mondays and Wednesdays in Arnis(Eskrima), Tuesdays and Thursdays in Kyokoshin-Kai, and on Sundays in Silat and Navadisha. Then, I usually have performances either Fridays or Saturdays. So, yes I am doing a lot, but I am used to it and with all that I have and been doing, Martial Arts has passed the line of being a sport to me, now it is a lifestyle. Like many of you have heard before, Martial Arts is my passion, and without it, I just would not be myself. It is in me, and all around me. I will keep on pursuing my dreams in hope to make it big one day, and I hope to be the young lady that all girls look up to as a confident, strong female roll model. Even though my goals may seem far fetched, I WILL DO IT! and I will jump as many hurdles as I have to no matter how tall or long. Everyone will know the name Mariah Moore.
