Determined & Prepared: Interview with Julie Kitchen

I was lucky enough to get an interview with Julie Kitchen this week. It was later in the day British-time, and I caught the champ running up the stairs to her new and extended gym (Touchgloves in Cornwall). Number-one ranked British fighter and Mum of two 8-year-old twin girls, Julie had a few things to say. She named determination and preparation as secrets to her success.

A very shy and reserved person, the current K1-world-champion has noted and cultivated her determined spirit through fighting and training. The best way to face down a challenge, according to Julie, is preparing to the very best of your ability. In her case, this means putting maximum effort at the gym and mentally, at home, because—in the fight game—you can assume your opponent is always training. It becomes much easier to banish negative thoughts if you know you’ve done everything in your power to prepare for an upcoming challenge.

More strong-willed and ready to speak up, this once-shy fighter identifies the secret ingredient to her success as—importantly—knowing you can achieve great things if you really put your mind to it. With this certainty in your pocket—and it is a certainty—determination and perseverance are the routes that will take you there.
