As Black Belt/Martial Artist

Angie is known as Sensei Angie not only because she is a 2nd degree black belt in Shotokan Karate who teaches karate and self-defense, but she integrates the wisdom in the principles of karate in all that she does.

She has overcome major obstacles in life including living on the streets of L.A., sexual assault, domestic violence, and drug addiction…and has challenged through a complete life-makeover to become a successful business leader and role model for many others.

Learning martial arts and becoming a Karate Instructor, gives her a structured foundation to take risks, gain courage, build confidence and have the internal (and external) strength to live a ‘kick-ass’ life!
