Laura D'Auguste

Laura D'Auguste is a female mixed martial artist. She initially started practising martial arts to protect herself and her daughter from her husband. She also works as a cardiac nurse.

Biography Edit

D'Auguste's first experience with martial arts came in April 1996; previously, she had taken ballet and modern dance.NBC Her mother, Anita d'Auguste, signed her up for a Woman's Safe Seminar at Tiger Schulmann's Karate Center, where she learned basic grab escapes and strikes.NBC This came at a difficult time for the unemployed d'Auguste, who had recently left an abusive marriage, taking a 3 year old daughter along with her. Her escape to New York from Arizona had to be planned carefully; her husband had threatened to kill her if she ever left.NY

D'Auguste had already spent all of her money on child care and nursing school, but knew she needed further self-defence training. Sensei Peter Guzman, an instructor at the school, made an agreement with d'Auguste that she could work off her tuition fees through various chores at the gym; for example, taking calls, mopping the floors and cleaning the locker room. Soon, she was training regularly, eventually earning her 2nd degree black belt and level 2 Joshu.

D'Auguste began competing in MMA in 2000 for the TSK Fight Team, later becoming the top ranked female fighter in the world. Her last fight was a win against Megumi Yabushita at Smack Girl: Dynamic on 17 August 2005.
