DIGITAL, PAPER & AUDIOBOOK
Golden girl Cindy Villanueva left home for UCLA, full of promise—and one year later was an unwed teen mom and college dropout. After suffering domestic abuse and two divorces, she was on the ropes. Don’t Fight Mad describes her journey back to the joy-filled life she enjoyed as a child.
Through deeply personal stories, Cindy shares how martial arts became a metaphor for recapturing her strength, identity, and joy. She offers a candid and authentic blueprint for those who long to rekindle the wonder of a well-lived existence.
Whether you are an avid martial artist or you assiduously avoid exercise, Don’t Fight Mad has an inspiring message of fighting for joy and living in grace.
Cindy is a regular podcast guest and public speaker, addressing a variety of topics including martial arts, women in leadership, and having a “want-to” life.
