How can someone so young, be so lethal?

If there ever was a DWW Gladiator that had a baby face it was Nastassja. article, DWW photo credit article, DWW photo credit

It would be one thing if Nastassja specialized in erotic wrestling or full on competitive submission wrestling but the eye opener and surprise is in her BSA designation.

She’s a Black Sea Amazon Extreme Fighter.

Her skill is admirable, her tenaciousness well documented but being a smaller girl at 136 pounds, she often found herself in battle against larger opponents.

One reviewer who admired both her youthful looks and frightening skill reviewed, “Nastassja looked so bubbly cute there. Anna L: well, there weren’t many opportunities of shots of her face since she was mostly trapped at the bottom but she looked nice too afterwards.

There were a lot of scissor-locks; and every else needed to provide a very nice and exhausted competitive match.”

Nastassja even has the honor of going down in history as having battled the mighty World Champion Nadege. A star struck reviewer noted, “The tape starts with gorgeous newcomer Nastassja S. briefly posing and flexing her muscles. She’s a boxer and kickboxer but not much of a wrestler and here faces the world’s best submission wrestler Nadege. Nastassja was not allowed to use her boxing or kick-boxing skills, because Nadege would have had no chance against the heavier girl. Who will win? The wrestler or the boxer?”

Nastassja is spoken of in her passionate pursuit of Extreme Fighting at this review. “If you have ever seen BSA extreme fights and liked them, you’ll be most impressed by the Summer 2003 fights. Never ever before were the girls so determined to win and so prepared. The aggressive and ambitious BSA newcomers are also stunning beauties.

What fighters they are! Nothing is held back. The kicks will shock you, the hits will make you reel back in fear, and they pull hair so hard and far they can smash their fists into the bodies of their opponents while the other round the mat by the hair! It’s unbelievable that anyone, let alone pretty young women, could delight in this as a sport. But this lot are fearless, with a tremendous will to win. If you like pretty girls fighting really rough, don’t miss this!”

Being a proud Black Sea Amazon certainly speaks to the region that Nastassja is from.

One of the most prominent cities of that region is Odessa.

As of this June, 2015 writing, much has been in the news about the conflict in the Ukraine region. What often goes unnoticed is how beautiful the region is. Let’s speak to that.

First some basics.

Odessa is the third largest city in Ukraine with a population of 1,003,705. The city is a major seaport and transportation hub located on the northwestern shore of the Black Sea. Odessa is also an administrative center of the Odessa Oblast and a multiethnic major cultural center.

There is often this perception that region of the world is always frigid. Not necessarily so.

Odessa is a warm water port. The city of Odessa hosts two important ports: Port of Odessa itself and Port Yuzhne (also an internationally important oil terminal), situated in the city’s suburbs.

Their government site would like to greet you. “The first days of summer at the beach “Langeron” delight vacationers with good weather and a great opportunity to spend time by the sea.

There are landscaped areas for relaxation, colorful playgrounds, equipped medical and rescue points.”

Providing a deeper insight is which shares, “The City of Odessa is often referred to as “The Pearl of the Black Sea”. Odessa is a beautiful city on the Black Sea coast that holds a special place in the hearts of Russians and Ukrainians.  A visit to Odessa is sure to be unlike a visit to any other city. In contrast to other cities of the former Soviet Union, Odessa is rich in Western European culture. Odessa is known throughout the world for its art and culture and has, what is considered to be, the second most beautiful and important opera house in the world.

In the summer, they relax along the sandy shores of Odessa beaches and experience this eternally young city.  The beaches allow tourists to feel like they are in the Mediterranean. All of the coast of Odessa is lined with popular beaches. In the summer they are filled with beautiful girls, music, and visitors sampling tasty food.  One of the most popular beaches is Arcadia Beach, which is located about 10 minutes from downtown.

Walking in Odessa you can see its history from classical Italian influences to Soviet era apartment complexes. On Deribasovskaya Street – the central street – there is a variety of restaurants, theatres, concerts and a promenade of people. The port of Odessa has ships from all over the world arriving daily.”

They continue with ten good reasons to visit Odessa.

Thank you so much

It’s easy to admire the climate comfortable region almost as much as watching Nastassja compete. Her name means resurrection and it was wonderful to reconstruct the past to swim in her warm memory. article, DWW photo credit article, DWW photo credit

One of the beautiful girls from the Black Sea region certainly made a name for herself. Nastassja is another shining example of how the global sport of women’s wrestling blesses us with opportunities to explore beautiful parts of the earth that we had misconceptions of or didn’t know existed.
