Adrienne Seiber is a force to be reckoned with. On Friday, she completed a feat that you don't see many moms do. Seiber, 40, brought home a 3-round victory against Charmaine Tweet, the Canadian Muay Thai Boxing champ and tough Mixed Martial Arts competitor.
Seiber is one of Chicago’s finest who’s professionally trained under at the in Evergreen Park. At the event, she had "relentless take-downs, position control and 'ground and pound' for 15 minutes," according to the Academy's Facebook page. "Excellent execution of the game plan!"
“I am competitive by nature,” Seiber says. “I like to push myself with anything (I do)."
Nicknamed "Aggravated Battery," Seiber has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and has trained in Mixed Martial Arts since 2008 when she officially became part of the Academy’s fight team – Team ASD. But Seiber's own protection was at stake just before she began studying Martial Arts. The dangerous nature of her job as a Chicago Police Officer motivated her to learn the craft.
“Once I got onto the street, I got into a small altercation when a guy just threw me across the parking lot,” she said. Seiber thought to herself, “I need a little more training so I can be able to protect myself.”
