This entry is different from our usual fitness models, bodybuilders and physical trainers.
Satoko Shinashi is a female Japanese mixed martial arts fighter.
Of course no one doubts that MMA fighters are fit, a lot of the fitness models here and on my other fitness blogs use MMA training as one of their ways to stay in shape.
Satoko was born on January 29, 1977 in Tokyo, Japan.
(Hmmm...thats me, Liza Kampstra and Satoko all born on January 29th.)
She uses Judo, Sambo, and jiu-jitsu in her matches, and is known for her armbars.
Actually she is 28-2- 2 ( her website lists her record at 30-2-2 ) in fighting with 22 of those wins being via submission and 17 of those submissions were armbars.
Pretty much if she gets an armbar locked in, it's over.
Her two losses were to Mai Ichii by decision and Hisae Watanabe by knockout.
You wont be seeing her in the ring anytime soon though.
Back in January, it was announced that Satoko is pregnant.
You can visit her website here:
And here is a video of her in action against various opponents.
