I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn't the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!
When I opened my school in 2000, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Ardsley, Briarcliff Manor, Carmel, Fishkill, Newburgh, and Shrub Oak by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.
