She grew up behind the scenes in Hollywood playing on the lap of the creator of Star Wars, but what she really finds exciting is Jiu-Jitsu and MMA.
Amanda Lucas, the daughter of filmmaker George Lucas, has been champion of Japanese promotion Deep ever since Feb. 2012, when she tapped out Yumiko Hotta in the third round.
Her story has become a documentary in the hands of Bobby Razak, who besides being a movie director is also a martial arts buff. The film is set for release later this year.
Lucas had cameo appearances in a number of her father’s movies, but what she really gets a kick out of is twisting opponents into pretzels at Deep. At 31 years of age, she has amassed five wins and a lone loss—via knockout on her debut, in 2008. She has three career submissions, curiously all against Japanese opposition: one footlock (earning her the belt), one rear-naked choke and an armbar.
