Billie Starkz: Joshi Women Are A Whole Different Beast, Those Women Are Some Of The Best In The World

Billie Starkz credits the Joshi Women for helping her a lot in professional wrestling.

In an interview with Fightful’s Scott Edwards, Starkz compared training with TJPW to training in the United States.

She emphasized that it’s a different style, and the way they teach things differs from some methods in America.

“I wanted to train, and I requested to train there. They were like, ‘You’re not here that long. Go have fun.’ ‘No, I want to train with everybody. I will also have time to do stuff.’ It’s just a different style. The teaching is kind of the same, but the motions and how they’ll change these little things, and I like the little changes that they make sometimes. When you are training, it’s still full speed, but you kind of cheat everything where you don’t hurt your body. ‘This is great; how do you guys do this?’ In my head, I’m like, ‘I just have to do it or walk through it, I don’t know this middle pace that you’ve figured out.’ I feel like the women that I wrestled there helped me so much with the little time that I got to be there. The Joshi women are whole different beasts of wrestling. I’ve always said that I am super-inspired by Joshi wrestling because those women are some of the best in the world,” Starkz said.

Starkz continues to compete around the wrestling world for other promotions, including ROH, GCW, and MLW, among others.
