Student Profile - February 2019


This month the Master Instructors chose Edna Rodriguez Plate and asked her, "What have you gained from your martial arts training?" Edna is a 1st Degree black belt in American Eagle Style and a Purple Belt in the American Eagle Cane Style. She is a professor at Hamilton College and has been training with us for more than 6 years.

"By training in the martial arts I have gained a lot of confidence, confidence in my abilities to defend myself but also in everything I do in every aspect of my life. I have become a better professor, a better parent, and a better person overall. I walk with confidence and awareness; I tackle any problem with the same confidence; and where I used to see problems and obstacles, now I see solutions and possibilities. My training in the martial arts helps me to live without fear. I know that if I fall I can stand up again and again. I am not afraid of falling. In fact, my training continually helps me to accomplish anything I want to do. I can’t imagine my life without my training."
