Lauren Coda : women martial arts world

What's your name, your age, where do you live ?

My name is Lauren, i’m 28 and i live in Paris,

In 2013, I founded the Kickass team, a group of young women representing different martial arts and disciplines, selected for the 8th season of Incroyable Talent on M6.

I also joined the cast of Deus Ex Machina, a show combining martial arts, theater, dance and body painting, which will occur on December 7, 2013 in Paris,

Which Martial Art do you do? What belt ?

I’ve been practicing capoeira for 10 years (blue belt) and martial arts tricking for 3 years,

I used to practice karate and aikido when i was younger,

How many years of training ?

12 years

How many hours of training per week ?

Around 2 hours per day, whole day on week ends,

Why did you start this sport ?

My brother always wanted to teach me karate, so i’ve been raised in the universe of martial arts movies, games, cartoons… then it was kind of natural for me.

I have to confess that eddy gordo in tekken 3 inspired me a lot, as well as the movie «only the strong» with marc dacascos, at the time

Why do you like this sport ?

I like everything in tricking. But what I like most, is the way it helps you to discover who you are, and how to improve every single thing in your life through practicing.

The second thing I love is the tricking community  

What's your favorite technique?

Raiz definitely. And every move which is related to it. I love kicks, twists, flips, no preference. Everything goes

Have you ever had to use your skills in self defence?

Unfortunately, yes.

Would you like to play in action/martial art movie ?

I already did, and i had amazing experiences each time. I hope i have the opportunity to do it again soon,

I'm stuntwoman for movies, TV series, I have a role in a French-Brazilian series, which is still in preparation.
I worked for Crossing Lines series currently going on TF1, as well as the film : Au Bonheur des Ogres, which will soon be in theaters.
I shot for the promotional film of Miss Matahari brand and the Saint Georges Marc series (by Art Movement / parkour).

Do you have other hobbys ?

Yes, I love drawing, video games, dancing… I also practice parkour and thai boxing (I’m a beginner)

Any advices to women who want to practise this sport ?

Never give up.

Thank you very much Lauren !
