If you are interested in the success strategies of a successful fencer, martial artist, author, actress, and stunt woman, this episode is for you.
My guest today is Lori OConnell, author of When the Fight Goes to the Ground, and Weapons of Opportunity. With 24 years training and 21 years teaching experience, she holds the rank of 5th Degree black belt in Can-ryu Jiu-jitsu, a Japanese style primarily focused on self-defense and law enforcement. In addition to teaching Jiu-jitsu at Pacific Wave Jiu-jitsu in Vancouver, Canada, Lori regularly travels to teach Jiu-jitsu/self- defense seminars at martial arts schools and conferences across North America and internationally. Outside of the dojo, Lori is also a stunt performer. She has done stunt work for Smallville, Supernatural, Fear the Walking Dead, Wayward Pines, Van Helsing, Once Upon a Time, and others. She also recently wrote and produced Inner Demon, her first short film, for which she also performed as a stunt double.
