Dedicated and hardworking, Master Brydges served 6 years in the U.S Army Military Police Corp. Over the years Master Brydges was stationed in Ft. Greely Alaska, Sinai Egypt, Ft. Ord California,and more.
Master Brydges aims to combine both life lessons and skills that she has learned in her training into every class. She expects each student to strive to be the best that they can be both in the class room and out, and is always there to support the students. Although her classes are very structured she sets aside time for the students to let loose and have a little fun.
I started training nine years ago. My very first class was a knife defense class. I managed to break three toes and got a rubber knife in the eye, but I was hooked. Since that time…
My son started taking Tae Kwon Do at All Star Martial Arts a little over ten years ago, and he is now an instructor there as well.
I started training nine years ago. My very first class was a knife defense class. I managed to break three toes and got a rubber knife in the eye, but I was hooked. Since that time, I have taken every opportunity to learn and train in as many martial arts as I could. It also caused me to take a closer look at my own health and fitness as well. Four years ago I had the pleasure of visiting ICSU to get my certification in Krav Maga and have been teaching at All Star ever since as a Krav and fitness instructor.
My classes have a wide range of students from fifteen years old to grandpas and grandmas. They also range in experience. I have had the pleasure of instructing black belts in several traditional martial arts forms such as Hapkito, Judo, Akito, and Tae Kwon Do. I love to see how their own trainings blend with Krav, and then apply my observations to my own training and understanding.
I also blend my other training into my teaching as well. I like to have fun while conducting a class. A joke or a quick anecdote every ten minutes or so can keep student’s attention, and makes it easier to process information. I mix light sparring with pressure tests and aggression drills to make the training as close as possible to the real thing without causing injuries.
