My name is Hannia Zavala, I live in Mexico City. I’m a personal assistant, fitness and sports writer, social media specialist and a Jiu Jitsu practitioner.


You may remember our site as mymmalife.net, I discovered my passion for combat sports and martial arts at 26, then focused on BJJ only and haven’t stopped training ever since. BJJ changed my lifestyle, diet, mind and body. My training became a lot more frequent and even my travels revolve around the sport.

Part of my journey led me to moving from MMA and Muay Thai, to only focusing on BJJ, this is why I decided to give this site a brand lew look and focus.

Jiu Jitsu has grown a lot as a sport, I’ve met a lot of great people along the way, however there are still very few women involved. There’s still many things to learn, and a lot of life changing habits to acquire.

This is my personal journey.
