My dream of having a Martial Arts School

(Charleston, SC, USA)

My life long dream is to have a Martial Arts School. I have always wanted to show people how to protect themselves. This is not going to be a MMA school. This school will be a fun family oriented self defense school.

I have studied martial arts since a child. My focus for a long time was competition. But, when my friend was kidnapped and found 5 days later in a ditch, I vowed to never let this happen to anyone I know again. At that point, I switched to self defense training. Since then, I have been a head instructor in multiple schools in Wisconsin, but my move to South Carolina has made me want to open a school here. My focus is on women and children's self defense. I want to be able to pass along the knowledge that I have learned to as many people as possible and be able to protect as many lives as I can with what I have learned.

I am going to teach more than just punching and kicking. With the training, I also want to create life lessons between parents and children as well. With all this as well, I want to be able to give back to the community through charity.

To make this all happen though, I really need some help. Any donations would be greatly appreciated! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for any help that you can provide in making this a reality. With your help, we can stop the next kidnapping, rape, or abuse that happens on a daily basis.
