I needed to get in shape and the gym was boring. I started training at Changing Lives Martial Arts and now I am a fit woman, goodbye diets that didn’t work.

I started training in Krav Maga with Master Thomas right after 9/11 occurred. I wanted to learn real life self defense skills. Changing Lives Krav Maga did just that!
