UNE ATHLETE HORS DU COMMUN

Amal Amjahid est né le 28 octobre 1995 à Bruxelles, en Belgique. Alors qu’elle n’a que 6 ans, Amal est la proie des élèves de l’école due à sa petite taille frêle, mais avec un caractère bien trempé qui ne se laisse pas faire. Elle découvre le sport à la suite d’une altercation avec un garçon de son établissement scolaire qui fut fortement remarqué. Sa mère est convoquée à plusieurs reprises par les instituteurs pour parler des incidents survenus à l’école. Les professeurs conseillèrent à la mère d’Amal de l’inscrire dans un sport de combat. Débordante d’énergie, Amal souhaite pratiquer la capoeira. Amal s’essaye à plusieurs sports de combat, boxe anglaise, taekwondo, karaté, capoeira… Mais, très vite, elle s’oriente vers le jiu-jitsu brésilien se rendant compte que la faiblesse qu’elle ressentait dans les autres sports de combat face à des partenaires d'entraînements plus grand voir plus fort qu’elle physiquement, ne l’empêchait pas de les vaincre malgré sa plus petite corpulence, le rapport de force changeait.

At the age of 7, Amal made her debut with her coach Houry Khalid who would later become her stepfather. "She was very talented," recalls Khalid, her stepfather. Her evolution was remarkable for such her young age. ». Amal has no difficulty in fighting in the championships against heavier and older boys than herself, she does not hesitate to give them a lesson in humility and has won many fights.

Amal Amjahid was born on 28 October 1995 in Brussels, Belgium. When she was only 6 years old, Amal was a victim of bullying at school due to her small and frail size although she has a strong character. She discovered sport after an altercation with a boy from her school, an altercation that drew attention to her. The teachers advised Amal's mother to enrol her in a fighting sport. Overflowing with energy, Amal wants to practice capoeira. Amal tried several combat sports, English boxing, taekwondo, karate, capoeira... But, very quickly, she turned to Brazilian jiu-jitsu realizing that the weakness she felt in other combat sports against training partners larger or stronger than her physically, did not prevent her from defeating them despite her smaller build, the balance of power was changing.

The dream  PATH

At 16, Amal joined the national team of the Associated Wrestling Federation (FILA Belgium). President Carlo La Torre obtained an exemption to allow Amal Amjahid to represent her country at the European Senior Championship. She will compete against female athletes over 21 years of age to finish with a feat by winning her first major title as European runner-up. Amal is pursuing a dream she believes in with unrelenting passion.

The following year Amal will go to the World Championship in Los Angeles to compete in one of the largest sporting events gathering more than 3000 competitors from all over the world. She returned gloriously to Belgium having won her first world title, at that moment it was for her, a dream that had just come true and wich magnitude she could not measure since it was a catalyst to all her other successes.
