Let me start off by saying that I love Penny Thomas, maybe even more that Kyra herself. Not only is she beautiful, but she could could be my bodyguard. For example, she could protect me from those savages at Old Country Buffet while I'm standing in line. I'm just trying to get me some food and there is no need push or insist on filling up three plates at a time. If I owned an OCB (as I like to call them), I would be sure to attach signs to the sneeze guards stating that there's a limit to how many plates you may fill and that stuffing "leftovers" into your fannypack is discouraged. Regardless of my many incidents at OCB, that's not what we're here to discuss. We're talking about the amazing Penny Thomas - she is one of the few non-Brazilian female blackbelts in the competition scene and she's very accomplished.  Just take a look at this:

  • 2010 IBJJF World Championship, Black Belt 2nd place.
  • 2009 IBJJF World Championship, Black Belt 1st place (3rd in Open Class).
  • 2009 ADCC Submission Wrestling Championships, 2nd place.
  • Multiple time Grapplers Quest Champion.

The list goes on and on.  If that doesn't impress you, I don't know what will. Take a look at Penny applying a fancy yet simple spiderguard sweep in the video below.
