I had the fun privilege of working with high school women last week at Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, statistics indicate that 1 in 4 women from high school to college age will experience a sexual assault. Annia Forte, a dedicated student at the Gracie Academy and teacher at Crenshaw High School, helped us bring the Women Empowered self-defense program to the school, free of charge for the school. It was a fun evening, the girls learned a ton, and everyone had a great time! Thanks to our Gracie Academy students and assistant instructors who dedicated their time to helping these young women learn some self-defense and boundary setting principles. Our hope is that we can bring this to the school, and many others, as an after school program!
Eve and Rener are going #BeastModeForTheBrave to honor Eve’s friend and American Sniper Chris Kyle and his charity supporting veterans with traumatic stressors and disabilities. Eve met and worked with Chris Kyle on Stars Earn Stripes, an NBC celebrity competition show that benefited veterans charities. By winning the competition, Eve was able to raise $150,000 for the USO.
Despite being sick with the flu, Eve went #BeastMode Gracie style after being called out by former Marine Talon Smith!
No we can all help Chris’ legacy live on by supporting our veterans and going #BeastMode, challenging a friend, and/or donating funds to BeastMode4Brave.org
Nattie Neidhart and Mike Saffaie, you have been challenged to show us your #BeastMode or donate!
Let’s take a journey! I’m so excited to share this with you. Check out this video where Rener and I head DEEP into the Amazon Rainforest for the most amazing vacation of our lives!
We stayed at the Ariau Towers Jungle Lodge and interacted with squirrel monkeys, pink river dolphins, red-belly piranhas, cayman crocodiles, indigenous amazonian tribes and more!
Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD, and I can’t wait to share it with you! It’s an action-packed and super entertaining film, and has a stellar cast and crew. As you may know, my character, Chancara, has a FIERCE cage fight with Valina (Ellen Hollman)! From armbars to moonsaults, we leave it ALL in the ring.
