What got you interested in the Martial Arts?
-My Mother did when I was younger. She was progressing through the ranks and started me training with her. I trained from age 6-12 and competed at local and regional competitions. Even though I took breaks through the years, I kept coming back to martial arts, once in college for a year and a half and again now.

What is your favorite thing about CRMA?
The people. From the students to the parents and family members, I feel as though the school as a whole is a second family. Everyone is always welcome. There is always someone who wants to pick you up when you are down and push you to do your best. CRMA is truly a 2nd family for me.
