Melanie Hall

Traditional Martial Arts and Kicking Specialist

What got you interested in the Martial Arts?

I’ve been interested in martial arts since I was ten years old. I had some friends taking it and were really involved.I almost got my black belt twice between then and 16. But, life kept getting in the way and I never did. When I came to this school back in 2012, I was determined to see it through.

How long have you been training?
Off and on in my teen years and pretty steadily since May 2012 at CRMA.


1st Dan Youn Wha Ryu Black Belt
Level 1 Krav Maga
Blue Belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

What do you like to teach most?
Forms. I like the technique and skill required. It’s tedious and a show stopper, but it can define a brute fighter from a martial artist.

What is your favorite thing about CRMA?

I have a lot of favorite things about CRMA. What I love most is probably the atmosphere. I can be having the worst day, arrive in a bad mood, and before the class is over I feel so much better.
