“It was a heavy influence on me going into adulthood.” Waterson told ESPN when asked about her martial arts training.

“It’s really given me a voice. It gave me the confidence I needed to go into the world without shying away. As a kid, I was outgoing, but I also never wanted to make anybody mad. I never spoke out. But martial arts allowed me to stand up for myself when I felt like something wasn’t right or when I felt like I was being taken advantage of.Waterson told ESPN.
