MW – ActivStars

Karate Instructors



I have always had a passion for the martial arts since I started practicing Karate in the Activstars program back in 2003. I was able to earn my black belt back in 2011 under Sensei Kelly Balliet in the Isshin-ryu style of Karate. I have trained in numerous weapons, such as bo, nunchaku, Chinese fan, tonfa, eskrima, sai, and a self-taught sword style that I have continuously been improving on. I am also a graduate from Friends University, having received a Bachelor’s in Music. My goal has always been to try to learn what I can and improve on what I have, as well as instill my knowledge and experience onto the next generation.
