My vision is to make a difference in people’s lives through my commitment to excellence in my teachings. To teach students of all ages how to defend themselves, and provide them with the confidence that takes them from the victim mentally to a Victors attitude. I constantly train and study martial artist, being a student is just as important as being an instructor. I work from the belief that life should be constantly improved and developed. I build strong relationships with my students and parents. My core values drive the way I conduct my behavior with every person that I meet!
I have been a Colorado resident since 1983. Working in corporate America for more than 25 years. I have earned several degrees from Regis University. Continuous education is very important to me, just recently in 2019, I finished my Master degree, at Regis, while instructing and teaching, doing both full-time.
My start as a school owner began after enrolling my son at Trans Martial Arts, I decided to join Tran’s as a student myself. Being a student for approximately 2 years, I decided to quit my corporate job, and start teaching martial arts full-time in Longmont, and eventually opened a school of my own in 2007 in Lafayette Colorado.
I have earned several black belts in Tae Kwon Do and Muay Thai. I am currently training in Krav Maga, and always refreshing what I know in Tae Kwon Do and Muay Thai. I also have trained in Judo and Shotokan karate for several years. I enjoy practicing all martial arts knowing that every one has a purpose, but it is the instructor that gives purpose, direction, and meaning to the art. One of my passions is bringing what I know to the improved lives of women who have been subjected to domestic violence. I offer free training classes to all women!
