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.

Certifications:

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.
