Thanks to Yolanda for helping us out with info for the Yolanda Schmidt Awakening Profile.

Yolanda Schmidt, aka ‘The Springbok’ or ‘Landa’, was born in South Africa and now lives in Sydney, Australia, fighting out of PTJ Muay Thai Gym. She started training and competing at the end of 2010. At the time of writing she is still unbeaten, her amateur Muay Thai record is 8-0-0, and she drew in a recent K-1 bout against Kim-Alina Baldacchino. Last year she became the amateur Australian Muay Thai Champion at 57kg!

We asked her how she started in martial arts and she replied…

“I started Boxercise for fitness, training once a week in 2010. After 2 years I stopped taking dance classes at the studio and replaced it with MMA, BJJ and Kickboxing 3 nights a week. A torn shoulder led me to 7 months off training and when I returned, I found myself at a wonderful Muay Thai Gym, where I became addicted. At this point I still had NO intention of becoming a fighter. 5 months of being under the guidance of Andrew Parnham, I decided I wanted to fight. I took on my first fight on 11th of October 2013. An ankle injury on the sports field had me out of training for 7 months after my second fight, but I’m back and stronger than before, I aspire to inspire before I expire!”

Yolanda is also an accomplished dancer, having represented South Africa at the Irish Dancing World Championship.

About Rew Mitchell

President and founder of Awakening. Rew does whatever possible to support female martial artists in gaining recognition.An avid fan of Martial Arts, with a training history that began at an early age in Judo. Practicing this art was fairly short lived and only lasted two years due to family financial difficulties. It wasn't until age fifteen when training restarted with Kickboxing, and shortly after Kung-Fu. Rew finally settled on Wu Shu Kwan (Chinese Boxing), and for a couple of years trained between four and eight hours a day and took part in several displays, but only competed in a couple of exhibition fights.If time ever becomes available again, Rew longs to start training in Muay Thai.
