Position: Martial Arts Coach
Ann started her martial arts training in the mid-1990s at the Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts. From the beginning in their young adults program, her training has literally been a mix of martial arts: from Kali/Eskrima/Arnis, Indonesian Silat, Thai Boxing to Jeet Kune Do. As Ann got older she continued her training at the academy, training in Phase classes and then eventually training in classes taught by the legendary Guro Dan Inosanto. Under Guro Dan’s teaching and other senior instructors, Ann continued to refine and expand her knowledge in the various martial arts. In recent years, she has added Shooto, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Savate into her repertoire of martial knowledge.
Ann is constantly striving to learn and enhance her skills and knowledge in the martial arts and is interested in learning the history and culture of the arts as well. She has studied yoga and yoga philosophy, appreciating the connection between mind and body, and the understanding of our selves through this introspection and body mechanics. Ann hopes to share the knowledge she has gained through her years of training, and can only hope that others will gain the same appreciation and love for the arts as much as she does.
