With the recent tragic story of Gabby Petito flooding most media outlets, I wanted to do something to help promote martial arts so that people can become more capable of defending themselves and also benefit from the many positive residual effects that all of the different crafts breed. I reached out to three women who are all academy owners to aid us in spreading the word why training in martial arts is beneficial for women, children, and basically any person who wants to be more ready to take care of themselves and their loved ones.

Sabrina Kelly is the co-owner of The Vault Jiu-Jitsu in Morton, PA along with her husband, Matt. The Vault promotes positive vibes only and are growing rapidly in the community. They have a large contingent of active competitors as well as packed women’s and children’s classes. Sabrina started training at 37 years old after watching her husband competing and has become a leading ambassador for the sport in the area as she and her children follow in Matt’s footsteps.
Audrey Moser is the wife of professional MMA fighter Ben Moser. Together they have launched Moser’s Mat Club in Richland, PA. Moser is a kind soul who would do anything to protect her family, friends or animals. Do not let her kindness fool you as she will stand-up to anyone when it comes to bullying and taking advantage of the weak. Moser’s Mat Club has a wide array of classes in the MMA field, but we really wanted to get her view on wrestling and the advancements that have taken place for women in the sport.
Please check out our video chat above. They all have great perspectives and are three special people who give back to their community and represent what is good not just in the sport, but in the world!

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
