Martial Arts Legends Magazine labeled her the Greatest Woman Fighter of All Tiime. I just know her as my high-school classmate. Bridgett Riley is in the Boxing Hall of Fame, the Kickboxing Hall of Fame and the Black Belt Hall of Fame.

Bridgett, a multi-time world champion fighter, shares her awe-inspiring journey from Oakville High School to the world stage. Her transition from fighting opponents to battling cancer, and her adventures as a Hollywood stuntwoman, are nothing short of cinematic.

In this jaw-dropping episode, we stitch together a mosaic of personal battles, from the rigors of stunt work to the unspoken hardships of cancer treatment. We traverse the demanding lifestyle changes and hear of the unseen burdens shouldered by families. Diving into Hollywood's stunt scene, we reveal the risks and rewards that come with the territory, and then pivot to the strategies that set the stage for a meeting with none other than Don King.

Every story shared is a tribute to passion, advocacy, and the incredible resilience that defines the human experience. Join us as we celebrate these narratives of triumph, and be inspired by the courage that courses through every challenge faced.
