A Chat with Brazilian Kenpo
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
In addition to studying martial arts for 5+ years, I have clinical experience as a marriage- and family-therapist trainee who works with people of all ages. I specialize in parenting and relational skills. Brazilian kenpo prepares students for ground and standing combat. Smaller classes [allow for more] detailed instruction.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
No age restrictions.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I believe it is far too common that we see overcrowded dojos where students are falling between the cracks, allowed to practice techniques incorrectly, and behave badly. I aim to hold my students to a high bar of martial arts and integrity. My goal is to empower people and to affect lasting change.
What do you love most about your job?
I love teaching and being around martial arts! It is so rewarding to see students be challenged, mentally and physically, to champion over their fears and develop a sense of self-esteem and respect for themselves as well as others. I update parents after every class about progress and growth.
