Im 37, married mother of 2 active boys. I live in Mesa, Az and practice American Kenpo Karate. I received my 2nd grade black belt in May of 08 and am back in training for my 3rd grade black belt which I will test for next year hopefully. I love martial arts, its shaped me for the better, at home and at work. Its kept me in shape when the beer and bad food have tipped the balance. It helps my self-esteem and keeps me strong. I wanted to be someone my boys were proud of, and they are. My youngest will receive his 3rd brown belt and my oldest has his 1st black belt and will train for his 2nd with me. I'm married to a wonderful man who I met in HS, and we just had our 15th wedding anneversary. I am also an Organ Recovery Coordinator for a local OPO in Arizona.
