Here is a quote Ashley gave to Awakening:
" I first started training boxing when I was 15, it would have been 2002. My mom encouraged me to get involved with it to help because I was getting into bit of trouble back then and needed a focus, discipline, and a change of lifestyle. And now, combat sports such as boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai and BJJ was most definitely the change I needed. And seeing the women succeed in these sports; was the spark I needed to help inspire what is now my passion. I love to train everyday!”
