Freestyle Karate and Warren Krav Maga

Freestyle Karate was tarted by Sensei Wendy Sfikas in November of 2007.

She has been training in martial arts since the age of twelve and when her instructor asked her to take over the school, she jumped at the chance. It has always been her dream to be able to have a positive influence on the community. Since taking over Freestyle Karate, Sensei Wendy has turned a 30 student dojo into a 300 student dojo. The dojo starts children as a young as 3 1/2 and adults well into their 60s have been training with her as well. Sensei Wendy is constantly improving her own martial arts skills by training with kickboxing coaches, BJJ coaches, and Krav Maga coaches.

The dojo continually strives to bring new concepts together with the older more traditional mindset to truly be a free style.
