Q&A Session Between Nikki Lange and Elite Sports

Question: What will you suggest to the newcomers?

Answer: It takes most people about 3 months for their heads to get around what their bodies are trying to do, so don’t give yourself a hard time about progress. In a women’s only class, encouragement to give everything a go and that it doesn’t matter what you look like doing it is the way to go. For some women, a mixed class can be daunting, so if there is any doubt, it is ok to respectfully say I am sitting this one out or opt for a higher ranked belt of similar size. It is important that every woman is invited to voice queries/concerns with their coach..
