After much contemplation and even more urging by friends and fans, I have decided to streamline my fighting adventures into one main path. For the past few months I have been toying with different ideas, different hashtags, different nicknames to try and get the feel for what I truly wanted to do.
One name kept coming back to me. Bad Ass Valkyrie. Its what I have been called. Its who I have become. Its truly, without a doubt Me. So, today I waded through the bog of social media sites and made sure I could announce this with at least 90% consistency that I am Amy Graham, Bad Ass Valkyrie.
Official Athlete Fan Page:
Official Email Address: email@example.com
Official Instagram Account: instagram.com/badassvalkyrie/
Official YouTube Page: UCTB10JLcUMpqlVmRqhbfAKQ (I have to wait 30 days for a custom URL)
and of course Twitter had to be the one bad apple in the bunch but I managed to change that to @badass_valkyrie which I am still happy with.
So now, I am out there. Officially out there. As an Athlete. I never thought I would ever consider myself that. Or have fans. But I do.
And its pretty damn awesome!

15 years ago I was a 450-pound gamer. Today I am a full contact Medieval Combat martial artist and extreme athlete. I have been fighting for over 6 years and in the past year transitioned into becoming a triathlete and retiring from being a full-time competitive fighter. I still fight, run, and enjoy every adrenaline-induced Adventure I can find!
This is my little space on the web where I am keeping track of my adventures. It has been a wild ride so far and it just keeps getting better. This past few years I have found a new love of journaling, planning and all things analog. I love stationary and ephemera and I have incorporated that love of paper into my YouTube channel, where I do notebook and planner reviews as well as vLogging about my BadAss Valkyrie Adventures.
People often ask me why I push myself so hard. Especially after I had gastric bypass surgery and lost over half my body weight. I came to the realization that I just don't have what it takes to sit back and be 'average'. I will never 'settle' for something less.
So here I am, 15 years post-op, I just turned 55 & had my right hip replaced but there's no signs of me slowing down, just changing the game! I'm built for strength & endurance, not mediocrity.
My life runs on caffeine and chaos, so buckle up, its gonna be a wild ride!
