Smole Sensei

Smole Sensei came to Shoshin Ryu with a background in cross-country skiing, road biking and triathloning. A natural athlete, Smole Sensei quickly took to the mental and physical training the dojo provided. She became a yudansha (blackbelt) in 1997. Sensei is known for her fast, crisp atemi (strikes), flurries and sutemi waza (sacrifice throws). She is a solid Iai practitioner and enjoys knife training as well. She is a frequent instructor and is currently on the board of the non-profit group Shoshin Ryu of Arizona. She also directs the dojo in Los Alamos, NM.

Smole Sensei holds an M.B.A. and is certified Hypnotherapist practicing in Los Alamos, NM.
