Sensei Amanda LaForge

Specialties:
Pangai-Noon for Women
Stage Combat
Self Defense

Certifications:
2nd Degree Blackbelt

Philosophy:
Studying martial arts can be empowering, mentally and physically challenging, and a great way to learn about self-defense. But the typical dojo does not always feel welcoming for women and the LGBTQ+ community. Sensei Amanda seeks to create a safe space for those who are underrepresented in the martial arts through a friendly and ego free environment.
