Gina’s love for boxing started with Sugar Ray Leonard. “We were the only family with cable TV so we hosted great fight parties. My earliest memories include the fights between Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran and then Thomas “The Hitman” Hearns.” Now, Gina finds herself a fan of Manny Pacquiao, “Being Filipino, there’s a great deal of pride to see him succeed and rejuvenate the boxing scene with such speed and power!”
Although her earliest memories are of boxing, Gina has been practicing her own brand of mixed martial arts at a school in Santa Monica, California, where she also teaches. In 10 years, she still practices Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai, Kali, Savate, and now Grappling. She has also earned a Level 2 Certificate in Muay Thai from the Thai Boxing Association and also a Blue Glove in Savate. Gina advocates the warrior and spiritual mentality of the martial arts. She believes that a fighter must show respect, intelligence, and integrity in and outside of the ring or octagon.
In addition to boxing, Gina also follows MMA. Her favorite fighters include Gina Carano, Cris Cyborg, Forrest Griffin, Anderson Silva, Chuck Liddell, BJ Penn, and George St. Pierre. When not living and breathing martial arts, Gina enjoys spinning and practices yoga.
Gina’s to do list includes getting certified in scuba, testing for Level 3 Muay Thai for Instructor, and writing a detective novel. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Gina graduated from Cal-State Dominguez Hills with a BA in History and a Minor in English.
