Holding Space with Magical Wheelism

Jun 30, 2020

Kaio-kensi is a trained neuroscientist who also happens to jam for Montreal Roller Derby’s charter squad New Skids. And while the competitive season is kaput. Her interest and passion for brain safety is a boon for us all, and we should always listen whenever she feels like speaking about the dome from the dome. Especially all y’all newbies who be on your TikToks and your instas sans protective gear! 

When she agreed to come on to talk brain safety accessibility in our sport, I had no idea that I’d be meeting an athlete who would travel about five hours back and forth to derby--even to a practice that started at 7:45AM, 11 out of 12 months a year--y’all, that’s love--and whose backstory illustrates that she’s always been the drummer and marcher of her own beat. Enjoy!
