The Norse way of speaking, no one really knew what the Vikings sounded liked, they were Norsemen. The accent is really a combination of a Scandinavian accent, maybe with a Swedish accent and an old way of speaking.
I started my own martial arts school at 16. And by the time I was 21, I had three different schools.
I started training in martial arts when I was 7 years old. I got my first black belt at 13.
I grew up in a martial arts gym surrounded by men and boys, and I pretty much call myself a tomboy.
I'm a 3rd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and 2nd degree in karate, and I'm a licensed bodyguard.
My first car was a Chevy Cavalier. My dad somehow convinced me that it was a hot sports car because it was red.
When I was growing up, there were times I had to compete against boys in tae kwon do, and I'd show them right away that I wasn't someone to mess with.
