Today I am writing about an old friend of mine, Erin Cantrell. I knew her through her husband, Paul Cantrell. I met Paul when I met K-1 fighter, Kelly "The Lion" Leo in the early 90s. We all started training together and became good friends over the years. Paul's wife, Erin was many things. Outside of fighting, she was a wife, mother to a daughter and 2 sons, and an awesome person (involved in her church and community). Erin was a seasoned black belt Karate fighter and Kickboxer. She was an accomplished amateur, fighting under ISKA, Shidokan, and WKA shows. As a professional, she fought in Chuck Norris' World Combat League. Unfortunately, she passed away a few years back at the age of 29 of acute pneumonia. She leaves with us a legacy that says go after what you want and enjoy it. Here is an amateur kickboxing match with Erin.
