I am a 3rd Dan in traditional Tae Kwon Do from American Karate under Mr. Jon Alster in So. Cal. With this training, I also have learned elements of Hapkido, Kobuto, and Escrima. I have been helping teach and teaching karate classes since I was in 4th grade, and have also assisted with coaching in the Olympic style of TKD – part of my 7 years with the CUTKD club. Also with the CUTKD club, I have competed at the national level for 6 of the 7 years. Overall, I have been in martial arts since I was 6 years old, and have been with Mr. Alster for all of it but the first year (plus my time at CU on and off). I continue to be passionate about it and love to teach it to others with the condition that the student(s) will listen, show discipline and respect, and an eagerness to learn the art.
I have a black belt in Hapkido, I specialize in children's and women's self defense, from avoiding a dangerous situation to defending oneself. I have been training in martial arts since I was twelve. I am very outgoing, enthusiastic and eager to help others feel ready to take on any challenge and protect themselves.
