A number of Invicta fighters have been supportive of #FranksFight as well. One of them, who I’ve had the pleasure of talking with via her Facebook page, is Tecia “The Tiny Tornado” Torres who fights out of ATT in FL. Tecia was named one of the top 20 WMMA athletes of 2012 and is a rising star with championship potential. When I asked Tecia if she’d be interested in doing a charity portrait she readily agreed!

“Our names in 21st century Western culture don’t usually mean all that much. When we hear the words “John, Jane, Wendy, or Fred,” they don’t carry any meaning in themselves. Only when we picture somebody in association with that name does the word have any true significance. However, during the time of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob it was just the opposite.”
“I’ve invited my friend (and successor!), Chris Thayer, to be a contributor each week. Chris is a gifted Bible teacher and has a heart for helping people go deeper in community, both with one another, as well as with God–particularly through the study of Scripture.”

“For many people who were not thrilled at the choice of either Romney or Obama, it seemed that this election wasn’t as much about issues as about personalities and posturing…”
This is the first in the “Dojo Discussions” series of ebooks we will be publishing. So stay tuned for more titles in the series and please share this with as many people as you can.
“Please continue to keep Frank and his family in your thoughts and prayers and continue supporting #FranksFight and spreading the word!”
“A person can practice forms until their drenched in sweat and their muscles are dead. They can hit a heavy bag or makiwara target until their knuckles bleed. But if they never seek to truly engage an opponent in real relationship (be it in training or in competition), they may be able to fool people into thinking they are genuine masters, but they will never be effective at the very thing that martial arts training is supposed to develop. They’ve missed the heart of what it is they started out seeking in the first place.”
