2.1. Sports Girl in School Life

Amanda Magda was a sports lover from her early childhood. She used to appear in various games at her school. She was in her school’s volleyball and handball teams. Amanda was also fond of swimming.

In 2014, she decided to take a chance with Jiu-Jitsu and joined the grappling class. Amanda was in love with grappling after her first grappling class. But this grappling experience could not prove long-lasting.    

2.3. Stopped Grappling Martial Art

After some time, Amanda could not continue her Jiu-Jitsu training because of her pregnancy and childbirth. Due to her pregnancy, she took a short break from Jiu-Jitsu. Amanda resumed her BJJ training after the birth of her second child. 

2.4. Post-Pregnancy Anxiety

After the birth of her second child, Amanda experienced anxiety and challenging mundane circumstances. She started medication suggested by a psychiatrist. Due to anxiety, she lost interest in her daily activities.
