My name is Hannia Zavala, I live in Tijuana, Mexico. I’m an Architect, a medical assistant and a fighter.
I consider my self a late MMA bloomer, I discovered my passion at 26 and havent stopped training yet. MMA changed my life, my diet became a lot more healthier, my training became a lot more frequent and even my travels revolve around the sport.
Spending two months in Thailand learning Muay Thai has helped me discover my limits as an athlete. As we all know it takes a lot of different disciplines to create a true athlete so here I am, jogging, boxing, practicing Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Jiu jitsu (GI) and no GI, Yoga and balancing life along the way.
The Mixed Martial Arts World is no longer a man based sport, however there are still very few women involved. There’s many things to learn a long the way, and a lot of life changing habits to acquire. This is my journey.
