Beautiful But Deadly 6 - More Deadly Women

More beautiful but deadly women with Michele Gutierrez, Zara Phythian, Whitney Jene Harchanko, Christine Theiss and more.

Here is another entry in my "Beautiful But Deadly" series.

This time we have (mainly martial artists) from Jujitsu, kickboxing, Brazilian Ju Jitsu (BJJ), Goju Ryu, Shotokan, Kung Fu, Wado Ryu, Krav Maga and boxing.

And we have actresses, stunt women, a doctor, a yogi and a former American Gladiator contestant....

Duda Yankovich

Female boxer Duda "Diamond" Yankovich was born in Jagodina, Yugoslavia on September 27th, 1976.
Besides boxing, Duda has a black belt in Shotokan karate that she got at the age of 14.
That made her the youngest black belt in Serbia at the time because they didn’t have "McDojos" that just cranked out black belts.
From Shotokan she moved to kickboxing and became national champion three times.
Not satisfied with that, Duda moved into boxing.
BoxRec has her at 11-2-0, with five wins by KO.
Her last boxing match was a loss to Esther Phiri on May 29th, 2010 at the Mulungushi Conference Centre in Lusaka, Zambia.
As far as I know she is not related to Weird Al.

Other people that have been inducted into the IKK Hall of Fame are Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Ernie Reyes, Hee Il Cho and Ed Parker.
Zara retired from competition and went full time into acting.

Actress, model and stuntwoman Christine Philips has been in martial arts for over twenty years.
She's trained in...(get ready)..Brazilian Ju Jitsu, Okinawan Shuri Te, Goju Ryu, Shotokan, Kung Fu, Wado Ryu and Krav Maga.
Add that to the fact she’s a stunt woman and gets thrown through windows and blown up on a daily basis and I'd wager that Christine is a pretty tough cookie!
She was also a contestant on the American Gladiators TV show.
You can find out more about her in the links section.

Angie Woolum

This five foot four, 126 pound beauty is Angie Woolum.
Angie's ring nickname is "The Mingo Warrior".
That comes from the Native American Mingo tribe who were considered fierce warriors.
With her hand speed, powerful kicking techniques and grappling skill, it may be hard to believe this lady was once a Homecoming Queen.
At one time she was rated ninth by the International Female Boxing Association (IFBA), she is an undefeated kick boxer, she was the first female American to win an
International Sport Jujitsu Association (ISJA) World Title in Full-Contact Sport Jujitsu and she fought for Chuck Norris in his World Combat League (WCL) for the Miami Force.

We need more women in the martial arts. Thanks for your posts. I don't think that many women realize that performing martial arts will contribute to their femininity. The few girls we have at the dojo are gorgeous. Maintaining a physical discipline through the growing years helps them develop beautifully. Also, the self confidence they get helps them deal with men's insecurities when they get in relationships.

Okay, you have one lady here I would take and wouldn't mind taking a beating from, as long as she would be willing to nurse me back to health when she is done kicking my ass. :P :) That woman would be Liz Shayne. :)

The glamorous English actress Honor Blackman began taking judo lessons as a wartime dispatch rider during the closing stages of world war II. By the time Miss Blackman was picked to portray Dr Cathy Gale in the second season of the cult T.V.series The Avengers she was already up to the yellow belt level. During fight sequences landing on cement floors continuously was energy draining to say the least. Miss Blackman never had to use a stand in /stunt double but she admited karate was something she knew nothing about but was willing to learn. The karate scenes were carefully choreographed and very realistic. Honor Blackman eventually published a hand book on Women's self defence.

Christine Philips, Whitney Jene. and Zara are BSers in that their accomplishments are nothing more than fluff. Philips has no real things on her acting resume and the stunts in film are pretty tame so you don't get "blown up" and windows are easily broken for such "stunts" and is an insult to those who do more than that. Zara's accomplishments are not hard to do considering the federations overseeing the hall of fame in which there is no one regulating body and pretty much anything goes.

All I can say is Zara Phythian, Kick-Boxing 4th Dan, Taekwondo 4th Dan, Shokotan Karate 2nd Dan, Two Guinness World Records and Trained 13 World Champions...
