If only we could.

Joy cannot be manufactured but when it does happen, it’s as though life’s past failures, present burdens and future concerns are lifted off of our shoulders.

Brand spanking new athletes or those who have been stellar for ages all love the feeling of unbridled joy as they execute their craft. article, photo article, photo

Basketball legend Michael Jordan was once quoted as expressing, “The game of basketball has been everything to me. My place of refuge, place I’ve always gone where I needed comfort and peace. It’s been the site of intense pain and the most intense feelings of joy and satisfaction. It’s a relationship that has evolved over time, given me the greatest respect and love for the game.”

Let’s travel to Brno, Czech Republic where joy blossoms.

Joy abounds when watching the Czech Princess Taifun wrestle because she is clearly having so much fun doing so. article, alphacatz photo article, alphacatz photo

She says so herself.

At the exceptional mixed wrestling site she giggles, “I have so much energy, I’m always ready for action. I climb mountains, race bikes, and work my whole body on a pole in pole dancing. I’ve always been inclined to use the grapevine hold in bed to get what I want, and my boyfriend loves it when I take charge 🙂 Learning how to wrestle has been such a joy to me, and it feels great to be told I have a talent for it!”

“Love is the joy of the good, the wonder of the wise, the amazement of the Gods.”… Plato

Taifun certainly does have a talent for it. The management at Alpha Catz sure seem to think so. They smile, “Taifun is a whole lot of fun to be around. She’s always smiling and is very easygoing. Once on the mats, she attacks like a tigress. She’s very strong for her size, her core and legs are like a rock as she wraps around you, squeezing the breath outta you with her thigh and butt muscles. Her scissors hurt!” article, alphacatz photo article, alphacatz photo

Possessing an eagerness to learn, a willingness to train and smiling while you compete can earn you a ticket to our industry’s largest venue.

Taifun experienced that when she competed at a Femwrestle event in Germany. Here is the match description. “The German wrestle girl and boxing experienced Sandra vs the much smaller Taifun. Sandra is very muscular and it seems that Taifun has no chance, but this small wild girl is a real fighter. A very intense and great match.” article, photo article, photo

Anytime you wrestle with creativity and enthusiasm, which Taifun does, you have a chance to win.

With great joy, we reviewed two of her matches at Female Wrestling Zone.



Smartly dressed in a grayish dark blue sports top and briefs that complimented Taifun’s shapely sensuous tanned beautiful form, at 5’ 5” and 130 lbs. she engaged Nica who is taller at 5’ 8” and slightly heavier at 140 pounds.

A newer grappler, Taifun gets off to a surprisingly good start, even breaking holds and scoring some submissions. Nica appears to have the edge in experience and makes a very strong mid-match comeback.

The question we had was would Taifun become demoralized and essentially give up. To our joy she didn’t. She did seem to tire a little but stayed in the fight making the match competitive right down to the end.

VS Artemis

Artemis and Nica are in no way twins but at 5’ 8” and 140 lbs. they match in height and weight. Once again Taifun finds herself on the mats with a larger girl.

This time though, with more experience.

Artemis had a very successful run at the Femwrestle events. We loved her and wrote about her.

Artemis, Czech Alpha Wrestler, Fighting Fitness Warrior

So Taifun’s task against Artemis would be tough and it was.

At times Taifun seemed to get a little frustrated, especially early in the match when she had the more experienced fighter in a submitting hold that she should have closed out but couldn’t. article, Female Wrestlngzone photo credit article, Female Wrestlngzone photo credit

This would repeat itself throughout the match.

Artemis has strong attributes of endurance and determination and those weapons were on display constantly throughout the match as she out maneuvered Taifun from the ground.

Having said that, though with lesser experience, Taifun heartily stayed in each battle segment.

Our Czech Princess is one exciting new fighter.

And what a name.

Where did that name come from?

Taifun was a German World War II anti-aircraft unguided rocket system. Waves of Taifuns were to be launched en masse into US B-17 Flying Fortress formations hoping for a direct hit. Although never deployed operationally, the system was copied in the US as the Loki, and the USSR as R-103. article, photo found at article, photo found at

The Taifun project originally dates to 25 September 1942.

No wonder our beauty has a warrior like competitive and joyous spirit.

There is also a cool and sleek fashion group that has branded her name as well. Did you know that? article, photo article, photo

At the fashionable site they glow, “The presentation of the feminine, trendy silhouettes gives our customer the freedom to develop her personal style – staged in perfectly modern combinations or innovative eye-catchers. The TAIFUN-collection embodies style competence at the height of fashion. Selected materials and young cuts give every garment that special character.”

Hey it’s not every day that you have a clothing line with your name on it.

When you are as gorgeous as Taifun, it’s understandable.

Her spirit carries over to other aspects of her life as well, like her love of hiking.

Did you know that the Czech Republic is a fantastic region to hike in? Look at some of the pictures. article, photo article, photo

Our hiking guides are ecstatic about it. At the friendly Czech tourism site, they invite, “One of the nicest places to take a walk in Prague is Petřín, whose imaginary crown is the famous lookout tower, nicknamed the little Eiffel Tower. The fairytale Průhonice Park, which is one of the largest naturally landscaped parks in Europe, is only a few kilometers from Prague city limits. The mountain path along the River Vydra is a beautiful place for all fans of the enchanting countryside of Šumava. There is no other way to get to the Punkva Caves and the bottom of the Macocha Abyss than on foot and the same is true if you want to wander among the massive sandstone towers of the rock cities in Adršpach or the Prachov Rocks in Bohemian Paradise!” article, photo article, photo

Sounds enticing.

The global news giant New York Times is impressed as well. They report, “The Czechs, known for their prowess in making beer and playing hockey, are also a nation of prolific hikers. Etched throughout this Central European country are nearly 24,000 miles of color-coded hiking trails, stretching from Karlovy Vary in the northwest to Ostrava in the east. Much of it is maintained by the Czech Hiking Club, a private organization, dating back to 1889, that splashes painted trail markers across trees and installs sign posts.”

“Joy is the simplest form of gratitude.”… Karl Barth

Taifun certainly has a well-rounded youthful and adventurous life. article, alphacatz photo article, alphacatz photo

We hope she stays in the game. She certainly has the talent.

With a joyful spirit and a supportive female wrestling community, given her name’s powerful historical past and her competitive bright future, Taifun is spreading joy whenever she engages on the mats.

Her joy is contagious.

We wish that we could capture it and seal it tight in a bottle.
