(she/her) Mushi no kokuro: mind like moon. To be as the moon, as the sun; that is the essence of Martial Arts. One with nature, one with self. Embracing the true essence of body, mind and spirit is what Martial Arts is about for me. One of the things I love about it is that one can practice alone, in silence. I was gifted with a curiosity of Martial Arts in the early 70’s when the TV show Kung Fu was all the rage. I was offered the opportunity to start my Martial Arts career learning Kung Fu for a year . It would be a few years until I started Shuri-Ryu Karate in 1977 and consequently Arnis, both of which have made me feel honored to call myself a Martial Artist. As the body ages, we cannot do things the way we did 10 or 20 years ago, so we find a way to adapt. That ability to adapt is embedded in the Martial Arts and encourages me to find new ways of teaching and being creative. This chosen path has given me many gifts in the form of friends, colleagues & students. All of my experiences have enriched my life. I continue to learn from my students, my teachers, daily experiences and the challenges and pleasures life puts on my path. I am grateful for all those who have come before and have yet to come.
