Learning karate and other lessons — later in life… and finding inspiration along the way.


I’ll be teaching upcoming FREE classes:

DATE and LOCATION:  January 16 – 24, 2018 — Regular RTR and Women’s RTR (Rubber Tramp Rendezvous) in Quartzsite, AZ.

Women’s Self-Defense:  An Introduction
(a.k.a.: How To Become a Nomad Ninja!)
Everyday Weapons for Nomads
Basic Strikes, Kicks and Self-Defense Techniques
An Intro to Martial Arts and Model Mugging which begs the question:  Which of these is better? You’ll find out in class.

I will customize these classes for you, based on your needs.  All are welcome.  You do not need to be an athlete or a perfectly physically fit adonis to attend!  Bring your physical limitations, canes, walkers or whatever else with you.  I will teach you how to use them against an attacker.

So that you can receive individual attention, class size will be limited to 8 women so that I can give more personalized instruction. 

Classes will be approximately one – two hours in length, held a few times throughout each day if there’s enough RTR attendee interest!

Please note that the regular RTR starts on 1/11/18 and ends on 1/21/18.  I’ll be arriving late Saturday, January 14th for the regular RTR and I’ll be offering classes the entire week, as well as at the Women’s RTR from 1/21 – 24/18.  Since this is my first time attending this event, I’m not sure what to expect.  I’ll post a sign-up sheet and class schedule each day, at wherever people post those things at camp… I’ll figure that out when I get there.

Have you always wanted to take a self-defense class but didn’t know where to start?  Then this is the class for you.  Are you already a Ninja, but just need to brush up on some skills?  Then please join us.

You’ll learn the basics of self-defense from a female martial artist who’s been walking that path for several years.  (Shodan – Black Belt, 1st Degree)

Feed your mind and body with knowledge and gain a more peaceful spirit.
Now is the time to begin the journey…
