My name is Sepi Melamed.  I’m a wife and mother of two amazing, strong minded teenagers. I’m a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Kaizen Karate, 3rd Degree Black Belt in Krav Maga, awarded to me by John Whitman, founder of the Krav Maga Alliance and Co-writer of the book “Complete Krav Maga”. I’m one of the select few who has been awarded “Train the Trainer” status by the John Whitman and the Krav Maga Alliance.

Recently I started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and have become obsessed! I have achieved the rank of Blue Belt and recently won Gold in IBJJF World Masters Championship back in Aug. A very proud moment for me. Yay! I started my Martial Arts journey about 17 years ago.

One of the most obvious reasons for training was to take control of my own safety against a possible violent encounter. 

As I like to say, Martial Arts gives me a fighting chance!

However, it’s the benefits of training is what has me hooked for life. Training in Karate, Krav Maga and BJJ has given me confidence!

I’ve become a a go getter and someone who refuses to give up.  Martial Arts has transformed my body and mindset.  Through Martial Arts, I have developed life-long friendships, some of whom are like family to me. Martial Arts Empowers me!  And, I’m blessed to have the opportunity to share my knowledge of what I’ve learned in training with others,  to help empower and uplift, so they can have the same life changing experience as I did.

I believe all are Alpha Maidens!

Strong, powerful, beautiful and bad ass!

And together we are stronger.
