As a busy professional with a family to take care of, I got into karate for stress relief. The more classes I attended, the better I felt.

When I began my training, I was a Registered Nurse (RN) with a Masters degree, but becoming a Black Belt gave me more confidence and empowerment than my degrees or career.

I made quicker and more accurate decisions. I became so disciplined I was able to accomplish more, plus be more effective. My body became the body of an athlete and I had never exercised before starting training!

Since martial arts had done so much to change my life, it became my passion, my VISION for the future, to change lives in the same way my life was transformed. To have the opportunity to accomplish this I opened Vision Martial Arts Center in 1995.

I HAVE NEVER LOOKED BACK! After promoting over 160 people to Black Belt and changing thousands of lives, I continue to have the passion for "Building Positive Life Skills Through Martial Arts".

Please don't hesitate to begin your journey in martial arts. YOU WILL NEVER LOOK BACK -- I PROMISE!
