Jump Back to the Action:
My name is Heather Theiss. I am a 1st Degree Black Belt and an Assistant Instructor with ACTIVSTARS. I earned my Black Belt in 2016 through the ACTIVSTARS Program. I was a student at the UMKC School of Nursing and graduated in 2017 with my BSN and I currently work as a Registered Nurse at Research Medical Center. I am certified in Concussion Protocol and CPR Basic Life Support with AED training. I am proficient with Broadsword, Twin Broadsword, Broadsword and Shield, Bo Staff, Chinese Fan, Katana, Bokken, and Shuriken Throwing. I enjoy training and teaching with my husband, Jon Theiss, and his family. Working as a part of a family has been a very rewarding experience and I encourage others to try it as there are so many benefits to learning karate as a family.
Kids benefit in big ways from our programs
"We love the different levels, and our star looks forward to each semester where she gets to learn something new. Pom tryouts were a nice touch."
"The best thing any young cheerleader can do to get ready for their school’s cheerleading tryouts."
"Big emphasis on teamwork and fun, which you don’t find in many programs. Thank you for being so inclusive."
