By great fortune, Judith Pile found martial arts and Seven Star in 2009 with her daughter, and once she started she was hooked. Judith now holds the rank of black belt. The combined emphasis on fighting and taking care of one’s partners and oneself resonated, and she found the practice helping her both physically and mentally. Her favorite part of teaching is seeing people move from being unsure and timid to developing skills, tools, and most importantly the knowledge that they are worth defending and able to do it. She teaches both Kajukenbo and self defense, and wants all women who come through Seven Star to use their training and the supportive community of Seven Star to realize their own incredible power.
