Your Instructors

Professor Laurel earned her Black Belt from Professor Carroll in 2016. She has been a full – time Martial Arts Instructor since 2016. She also earned a graduate degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Professor Laurel is the mother of two teenage daughters who started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of four and have grown up in a martial arts school.

Our team is committed to supporting children, teenagers and adults on their martial arts journey towards Black Belt & beyond.



Now, more than ever, our youth need the tools to defend themselves mentally & physically.


We often meet children who are:

  • Generous and kind but are so shy that they have a hard time connecting with others.
  • Athletic and physically gifted but do not know how to control their energy.
  • Refuse to try anything unless they are sure they will do it perfectly.
  • Awkward and have trouble connecting with people appropriately.
  • Interested in everything but can get overly focused on digital devices and cannot shut it down.

Studies show that Martial Arts training:

  • Research with adolescents and young adults examine the benefits of martial arts in teaching self-control, enhancing self-esteem, teaching a more positive response to physical challenges, and inducing greater emotional stability, self-confidence, and assertiveness.
  • Martial arts provide an outlet for participants to channel energy into a productive and self-enhancing activity (Twemlow & Sacco, 1998).
  • They have also been demonstrated to improve concentration and self-awareness in children (Lakes & Hoyt, 2004) and tentatively aid executive functions (Diamond & Lee, 2011), including self-monitoring and awareness (Haydicky et al., 2012, Lothes et al., 2013) and cognitive-regulation (Lakes & Hoyt, 2004).
