Also has been called Monkey, Erica can laugh at herself, like the time she made a hot air balloon out of a box and big bag. After launching it, the wind caught it and it flew back smacking her in the face. Some other fun things about Erica is that she loves listening to Bug Hunter, is scared of snakes, and loves Philly Cheesesteaks and Fruity Pebbles.

My Martial Arts history: I began my martial arts journey in 2012 at Acitvstars under Sensei Alex Thompson at the St.Joseph, MO location. In 2014, Sensei Graham Leavell took over the St. Joseph location and I have been training under him ever since. In the spring of 2019, I was awarded my 1st-degree black belt in American Kenpo, and in the summer of 2019, I was hired on at Activstars as an instructor.
About me: In my time as a martial arts student, I learned many things. The most important things I learned were respect, discipline, and self-confidence. As your child’s instructor, I will strive to teach them all these things and more. My main objective is, of course, to teach your child stranger awareness/defense. But I also hope to pass on the lessons I learned while still having fun. I not only want to make sure your child learns how to defend themselves but to have an amazing time while doing it.
