Fighting For Change

According to the Department of Juvenile Justice, more than 600 Central Florida juveniles were sent to the adult court system last year – a disturbingly large increase from the 296 recorded from July 2004 to June 2005.

After a 2 year hiatus from competitive fighting due to nagging injuries, the 3-time
