A graphic designer by trade, Terri’s passion for physical fitness eventually led her to pursue certifications in teaching self defense and fitness. Terri earned the second Black Belt ever awarded to a female in the USKMA. She earned her 2nd degree Black Belt in October of 2013 from Foundation Krav Maga. She is also an experienced CrossFit competitor, having competed as an individual at the regional level in 2010. Terri is currently training to become one of the first Scandinavian Defendo certified instructors in the United States.
What initially drew you to Krav Maga?
I loved that it was a great workout but I also felt like I'd learned something valuable about self defense, even in one lesson.
As a busy coach, business owner, and athlete, how do "unwind" at the end of the day?
When the day is bad, I still get to come home to my awesome supportive girlfriend (who is also a Krav Maga machine!), my adorable pit bull puppy, and the breath of relief that comes only from being surrounded by the people who love you and know first-hand why you get up every morning and try it all again.
