    No Holds Barred: Felicia Oh, Grappling Star 

    On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with grappling star Felicia Oh.

    At the 2009 Grappling World Championships, held December 12-13 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, she won two world championships, winning both the no-gi and gi tournaments in the women's 50 kg/110 lbs. division. She adds these to her long list of grappling and jiu-jitsu credentials, which include a silver medal at the 2007 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championships in the women's 55 kg division.

    Besides competing in all these events, Felicia Oh is employed as a grappling and fitness instructor at the Big John McCarthy Ultimate Training Academy in Valencia, California.

    In a lengthy and heartfelt interview held just after she won that second world championship, she explains how and why she went from being a self-described computer geek to a world champion, and how grappling and jiu-jitsu have become key components of her life. She discusses combat sports and the need to have a healthy lifestyle. She explains how grappling helps her appreciate life. She frankly discusses why she made the life choices she did. And she gives you a glimpse of why so many people who know her respect her so much.

    Felicia Oh is thus a star both on and off the mat, and you can hear her on this edition of No Holds Barred.
